This is authentically polished Gold for readers who enjoy great fiction. A tale that transports us is what we hope and long for. In the pages of "To Refine like Silver" Jane Austen's stern Mr. William Darcy of Pemberly was quickly evaluated and teased by Elizabeth Bennett upon there initial introduction by her uncle Mr. Gardiner. "Whoever this man was, he was trying desperately not to show his emotions." Mr Darcy was impressed by Elizabeth's sparkle and her smile but he was not accostomed to being teased as women usually showered him with flattery. Lizzie was different from any other woman he had ever encountered and he instantly wanted to get to know this vibrant woman. He gallantly accepts the invitation to dine with Miss Bennett and Mr. Gardiner, with his sister Georgiana. "Please, Georgie. As your brother and guadian, I insist that you accompany me tonight.  I am not blind to your pain and sorrow." It was difficult for Georgie to attempt to smile or make conversation as shame filled tears leaked from her eyes. Elizabeth Bennett showed compassion for the melancholy state of Georgiana. Elizabeth suffered a similar sadness, and she eventually shares her victory in overcoming due to the love of God, her father and Jane. Elizabeth is compelled to help Georgiana do the same. A friendship is forged. With Mr. Bennet's background as a clergyman, it is clear in the writing of this book that Elizabeth's faith is profoundly important. Elizabeth was delivered from her depression by trusting in God and relying on His word and obediently forgiving others. Most Austen authors neglect the historically accurate fact that Jane Austen's father was a minister. Her world, her writings, and her fanciful measurements of Pride and Prejudice were indeed spiritually conceived. There are many positive messages found in "To Refine Like Silver". The title alone is God inspired. The spiritual illuminations are accentuated in most of Elizabeth's conversations. Nothing overtly religious, yet impactful to the readers of fiction. The pages turn quickly as it is a refreshingly sensative account of recovering hope.
