About this deal

I understand the value of showing Joy’s changing relationship with Jack and the many years it took for them to fall in love completely.

In this biographical novel, Henry tells how American poet and mother Joy Davidman became the wife of C.I took the seven or eight most asked questions and interviewed the experts I had interviewed for my novel. At the beginning of chapters, there are often small quotes or excerpts of pieces of work that relate to the text and I really loved this extra addition.

If I had the teensiest of tiniest complaints it's that sometimes it felt like the dialogue was awfully polished. I was SO positive I was going to love this book, and am disappointed it didn’t grab me, as it has so many other people.Despite being based on a very real and very interesting person who carefully selects her words, Joy Davidman is presented as a limp noodle who speaks in an annoying stream-of-consciousness way. In modern times, a museum curator is designing an exhibit of the recently found Pulaski treasures while she uncovers the stories of that night — true story! It wasn’t my favorite of the three—(a little too schmalzy for my preference with a L O N G drawn-out-theme-of-‘acceptance’…. Their Eros-story led to some of Lewis's greatest works, yet Joy is most commonly known for how she died.
