Back cover copy

There has probably not been a less likely couple: she, an American divorcee and the mother of two young boys; he, an Oxford don and confirmed bachelor who inhabited an eccentric household with his brother, a retired Royal Army major. Yet the relationship of C.S. Lewis and Joy Davidman, as told here by her son Douglas Gresham, was destined to become one of the most deeply moving love stories of the twentieth century.
