In the summer of 1952, C.S. Lewis met Joy Gresham for the first time. Born a Jew, she was a 37-year-old Christian convert taking time out from an unfaithful husband. He, at 54, was one of England's leading Christians and author of the "Narnia Chronicles". This is the story of their love.

Sibley's popular biography blends the writings of C.S. Lewis, especially THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA, with a chronicle of his marriage to Joy Davidman. His tragic love for Joy forces Lewis out of emotional "shadowlands" and into the deeper faith he has so long professed and taught. David Suchet's reading is moving and impressive, both in his narration and his characterization of Lewis. However, when he reads Joy Davidman, he so exaggerates the New York nasal that the listener's concentration is completely destroyed. British listeners might take it in stride, but Americans will find it irredeemably damaging to an otherwise fine reading. P.E.F. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
