Can one truly find relationship secrets in the tale of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen? Is it accurate to call these foundational principles “secrets”? Perhaps. Many have simply read through the novel, enjoying the development of the characters and the sequence of events, without grasping the underlying truths embedded throughout.
Chrisann Dawson has a gift for discovering practical truths in literature and, with this study, she will take you on a guided tour of Jane Austen’s life-supporting moorings, primarily focusing on the examples to imitate. However, Dawson does not ignore the fact that Jane Austen also lays open to ridicule the irritating examples of those to be scorned: the relationship between Mr. and Mrs. Bennet, the marriage of Mr. Collins and Charlotte Lucas, the impact of Mr. Wickham’s selfishness on everyone around him, and finally the backstory of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet’s rocky start.
Relationship Secrets of Pride and Prejudice utilizes Scripture to highlight timeless truths in a beautiful blend of educational, inspirational, and enjoyable lessons that explore familiar characters by laughing at their foibles, learning from their mistakes, and pointing to the strengths worth emulating.
