A captivating tale of passion and purity under the dreaming spires of Oxford
American Kate Hughes is swept into her first year at prestigious Oxford University on the wings of adventure and romance. Lord Stuart Devereux, a fellow student, hopes to win Kate's affection with his charm and wealth. In stark contrast, her tutor, David MacKenzie - a handsome young Oxford don and leader of the Inklings Society - takes a different approach as he contends for Kate with convictions of propriety and courtship.
This engaging tale of love ad purity - wrapped in a colourful sixties setting - brings alive the university world of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R Tolkein, and The Inklings and matches the charm of old-fashioned chivalry against flirtatious contemporary indulgence. Whether you're a C.S. Lewis devotee or simply a hopeless romantic, this story will certainly delight you.
Inklings contains the original novel and an all?new sequel titled Intentions.
It's the autumn of 1964 and young American Kate Hughes anticipates finding knowledge--and she hopes, love--at Oxford University. She discovers possibilities in David MacKenzie, a young lecturer who carries on the legacy of his recently deceased friend and mentor, C.S. Lewis. But conflict arises when she also catches the eye of the dashing Lord Stuart Devereux. Kate's heart is torn between the two men, and her Christian convictions are challenged as her vulnerability draws her to a rendezvous she may regret. Sprinkled with allusions to classic English literature, references to C.S. Lewis, and an appearance in the story from Professor J.R.R. Tolkien himself, this wonderful first novel unfolds with grace into an endearing story that will delight both devotees of The Inklings and readers of romance.
