Winner of the Christy Award 2019: HISTORICAL ROMANCE (tie)

Poet, atheist, and communist, New Yorker Joy Davidman was the most unlikely partner for English theologian, C S Lewis. Yet in her letters, he discovered a kindred spirit. This heart-rending historical romance novel comes with an endorsement by Douglas Gresham, Joy Davidman's son.

Endorsements:

"I have read with varying interest, all the biographies about my stepfather, but for some reason never expected that several would be written about my mother, which was I suppose rather foolish of me. After all, she was a hugely talented writer and poet, and an exceptional lady. However, there are now several published biographies of her available. When Patti Callahan decided that a new book about her was warranted, I was surprised, but as is my wont, I helped her as and when I could. The result of her work has turned out to be extraordinary. Callahan's book, which she claims to be semi-fictional, somehow captures the everyday nature of my mother rather beautifully! It tells us not merely of a courageous great poet, a novelist and even something of a theologian, but of a great woman. And that is something that I think, should be known." - Douglas Gresham (Joy Davidman's son)


A heart-rending historical romance, and a glimpse into the life of a writer.

Poet, atheist and communist, New Yorker Joy Davidman is an unconventional woman - and an unlikely partner for an English academic and theologian.

And when she starts a correspondence with Narnia author C. S. Lewis, she isn't looking for love. Her own marriage crumbling, she seeks refuge in her work, and guidance from a writer she admires.

But in Joy's letters Lewis discovers a kindred spirit, and an intellect to equal his own. Bonding over a shared love of literature and ideas, a deep connection is forged between the two.

Embarking on the adventure of a lifetime, Joy travels from America to England and back again. Facing heartbreak and poverty, discovering friendship and faith, against all the odds, the couple struggle to secure a love that will endure forever.
