Becoming Mrs. Lewis: The Improbable Love Story of Joy Davidman and C. S. Lewis Free Audiobook Download by Patti Callahan
"Becoming Mrs. Lewis" tells the story of Joy Davidman, a young American married to C.S. Lewis in England, who had little in common with her husband's religious world view and even less interest in its Christian practices. Her new life with him was not what she expected when she left home for "a career", until she came to know God and his love as expressed through her husband's writing.
In the little known story of Joy Davidman and C. S. Lewis, author Patti Callahan breathes life into an extraordinary tale of love, friendship, and all that is possible when we open our hearts to those who have given their lives in service to God. As we witness the intertwined lives of Joy and Lewis, many questions arise on what it means to live a committed Christian life that serves Jesus Christ in all things no matter the cost.
When Joy Davidman wrote, "Had I known what I know now about his life, or about mine--" in her memoir entitled Becoming Mrs. Lewis: The Improbable Love Story of Joy Davidman and C. S. Lewis, she wasn't referring to the man who would become husband to a metaphysical genius and author. She was referring to her husband's literary idol, C.S. Lewis--the author of The Chronicles Of Narnia: A Novel For Children And Adults --and it's the story that chronicles their relationship that is the most compelling aspect of the book.
This book is an account of how Joy Davidman and C. S. Lewis met and their bumpy road to becoming spouses that lasted for the duration of the author's life.
"One of the things I love the most about this book is how much of a time-traveler it is. The story begins in 1922, when Joy Davidman is a young woman living in Paris and looking for ways to break out of her comfort zone. It then moves forward to 1950, when Joy’s marriage has fallen apart and she leaves for America thinking that “something new will happen there.” The rest of the book follows her journey from an obscure “housewife into a literary star.”
A memoir of love, loss, and triumph by Joy Davidman, the wife of a famous atheist who followed her husband to the Christian faith.
