From the inside jacket:

At first glance, they were an unlikely couple: C.S. Lewis, the eminent Christian author and distinguished Oxford scholar, and Joy Davidman, a Jewish-American divorcee, mother of two, and former Communist Party member. But together they walked through the shadowlands of this life, where their faith was tested in the crucible of struggling and suffering.

This carefully researched and evocative story reveals the many events that occurred in their lives to bring them together and spark their love for each other. You'll see their tender moments, their times of fun and glory, and their darkest hours. You'll experience their sense of urgency as death loomed on the horizon and feel the touch of God on a lonely, grief-stricken Lewis, whose faith -- so ardently championed in his books -- was shaken to its very foundation.

More than a biography, more than a love story, C.S. Lewis Through the Shadowlands is a moving tribute to a couple whose faith, hope and love grew through adversity.
