Including the True Story of the Remarkable Love Affair between Joy Davidman and C. S. Lewis

There has probably never 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, portrayed in this moving autobiography by her son Douglas Gresham, was destined to become of the most deeply moving love stories of our time.

Douglas Gresham is the son of Joy Davidman, who later married C.S. Lewis. As a boy, Gresham lived at "The Kilns," the Oxfordshire home Lewis shared with his brother Warnie, and then Davidman. After many years in Tasmania, Australia, he now lives in County Carlow, Ireland.
