"No brief review can do justice to the human depth of this book. It invites us to explore a beautiful dollhouse of love and to witness the destruction of a relation too exquisite to last,"---Washington Post. Includes 18 letters from C.S. Lewis, ruminating on God and the reasons for human tragedy. 240 pages, softcover.
Beloved, profoundly moving account of the author's marriage, the couple's search for faith and friendship with C. S. Lewis, and a spiritual strength that sustained Vanauken after his wife's untimely death.
