Pemberley Ball: Arrival


Lady Vee is adorned in her finest evening wear and seated in the foyer in deep conversation with Lady Christine Pepperton about the matter of books. Specifically, what are the latest and most interesting by way of women's literature.

They are raving about the release titled, Pride and Prejudice, and speculate on who the mysterious author is behind the scrumptious scribblings.



Lady Christine Pepperton is in attendance with her husband Lord Michael Pepperton.

Coincidentally (like Lady Vee), they are visiting from America.

They also love going to balls.

To Refine Like Silver

If Mr. Darcy had met Elizabeth Bennet in his beloved Derbyshire, would he have recognized her as the love of his life instead of dismissing her as someone “not handsome enough to tempt” him? This alteration of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice adds a little spirit, flirtation, and charm to everyone’s favorite characters.

Early in the summer of 1811, Elizabeth Bennet travels to Derbyshire to help her aunt and uncle settle in as new owners of Saphrinbrooke. Elizabeth is soon introduced to the estate’s nearest neighbors: Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy and his sister, Georgiana, who is suffering the results of a fateful trip to Ramsgate.

Having endured several life tragedies herself, Elizabeth reaches out to the young lady of Pemberley. Under her radiant influence, both Darcy and Georgiana begin to look for help outside of themselves.

To Refine Like Silver is a romantic and spiritual journey where more than one of our favorite Regency characters must learn to fully rely on God. Their trials bring depth to the beloved story, and Mr. Darcy ultimately learns that our trials do not define us; rather they refine us.

  4. My favorite is Colonel Fitzwilliam. I love it when he gets a lot of page time in retellings, sequels and variations.

  5. Miss Jane Bennet would be my favourite character for she sees the goodness in other people instead of focusing on their bad traits.

  6. Mrs Bennet always makes me laugh. One determined, if a trifle silly, woman.
