"The love story of C.S. Lewis and his wife, Helen Joy Davidman Gresham, was improbable--and seemingly impossible. Their Eros-story led to some of Lewis's greatest works, yet Joy is most commonly known for how she died. Becoming Mrs. Lewis allows us to see how this brilliant and passionate woman lived--and why she stole Jack's heart"--

This book of fiction inspired by the relationship between Joy Davidman and C.S. Lewis is a gem. It is beautifully written and well researched by author Patti Callaghan. I could not put it down. The book contains additional materials and discussion questions for book clubs. Highly recommended.

This was a beautiful story based on the relationship of C.S. Lewis and Joy Davidman. A wonderful historical fiction read. It prompted me to look up more details about their relationship. Highly recommended.

Historical fiction based on the lives of Joy Davidman and C.S. Lewis, this is also a story of the woman behind the man. Their faith and genuine love is remarkable. There is a list of further suggested reading as well as a discussion guide for book clubs.
