A heart-rending historical romance.
Poet, atheist, and communist, New Yorker Joy Davidman is an unconventional woman - and an unlikely partner for an English academic and theologian. Indeed, when she starts a correspondence with Narnia author C.S. Lewis, she is not looking for love.
Her own marriage crumbling, she seeks refuge in her work and guidance from a writer she admires. However, 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 struggles to secure a love that will endure forever.
