In late 1956, an item in the Times of London stunned England's literary set. Confirmed bachelor and celebrated Christian apologist C.S. Lewis announced his marriage to Joy Gresham. His choice could not have been more unlikely.

Joy was an American, a divorcee, an ex-communist, and a former atheist. Yet this extraordinary and fascinating woman made a great impact on Lewis and his writings in the short time they had together. Download and start listening now!

    " I wanted to listen to this as a supplement to CS Lewis' "Surprised by Joy". The story of his wife is another remarkable tale of a once staunch athiest's conversion to the truth of Christianity. An essential read for any huge Lewis fan. "

    " Really interesting read for a good overview of the life of Lewis and Joy. Now I feel ready to delve into George Sayer's bio of Lewis. "

    " I would actually give this a 3.5 - very interesting story about the woman CS Lewis married, and her own journey from communism to Christianity. She was uber smart! "

    " Developmental Psychologists would love this book. Nature vs. Nurture indeed. Fascinating and repelling personal history of the unlikely future Mrs. C. S. Lewis. Her childhood as an Atheist Jew, Socialist, active Communist and where her complicated life took her, good and bad. "

    " Interesting to hear Joy Davidman's testimony and learn more about her relationship with C.S. Lewis "

    " Story of C.S. Lewis' marriage to Joy Gresham. Fascinating account of their history together and unlikely but beautiful marriage. "

    " Excellent read. The writing wasn't amazing, but I love the story of Joy Davidman's life. Dorsett does a great job presenting her as a person instead of a saint, and the story of her relationship with C.S. Lewis is romantic and lovely. "
