They seemed like an unlikely pair--he, the Oxford don and middle aged bachelor, she, a Jewish woman from the Bronx, ex-communist, and divorcee. Yet C.S. Lewis and Joy Davidman have become one of the most memorable couples of the 20th century. In And God Came In, Lewis scholar Lyle W. Dorsett presents the extraordinary story of Joy Davidman's life and marriage to Lewis. You'll learn about Joy's early life, her family, and conversion to faith in Christ. Rediscover the creator of Narnia through the eyes of this kindred spirit.

In this definitive biography of Joy Davidman, we read the real love story that the major motion picture, Shadowlands, could not tell. Lyle Dorsett reveals Davidman's profound influence on C.S. Lewis's life and writings.
A Love Observed tells a more complete story, not only about the brief marriage between the erudite and accomplished Lewis and Joy Davidman, but also of the famously vivid and assertive woman herself.
