A novel by

 
 
'Luminous and penetrating' Paula McLain

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.

Praise for this book

"This book is a work of art. Intelligent. Witty and charming. Becoming Mrs. Lewis is a stunning foray into the wilds of faith--from doubt and discovery, to the great adventure of living it out. Patti Callahanand rsquo;s invitation into Joy and Jackand rsquo;s love story is as brilliant as the lives they led. Iand rsquo;m left as spellbound as the first time I met Aslan . . . with these characters now just as dear." - Kristy Cambron

"Becoming Mrs. Lewis illuminates the raw humanity of seeking faith in a distrustful world. We've heard C. S. Lewis's narrative. Here, Callahan keenly demystifies poet Joy Davidman's story and in the telling, shows us the power of a greater love. I was wonderstruck by this novel." - Sarah McCoy

"Patti Callahan seems to have found the story she was born to tell in this tale of unlikely friendship turned true love between Joy Davidman and C.S. Lewis." - Paula McLain

"In Becoming Mrs. Lewis, Callahan peels back the curtain and allows a glimpse into Joy Davidmanand rsquo;s extraordinary life and her love and marriage with C. S. Lewis. With captivating prose, Callahan carries the reader across the ocean from New York to Oxford and into the private heart of this tender love story." - Katherine Reay
