ONCE UPON A WARDROBE WITH A NEW COVER
During the pandemic, and lockdown, I needed to try and find a sense in the senseless and a little meaning in the meaningless.
The story of Megs and George rose up with the backdrop of C. S. Lewis' life stories. We've been talking about "where do stories come from?" And this book was my attempt to answer that.
And TODAY, it is out in the beautiful new paperback version!
From the New York Times bestselling author of Becoming Mrs. Lewis comes another tenderly imagined and enchanting story that pulls back the curtain on the early life of C. S. Lewis.
"Where did Narnia come from?”
The answer will change everything
Megs Devonshire is brilliant with numbers and equations, on a scholarship at Oxford, and dreams of solving the greatest mysteries of physics.
She prefers the dependability of facts—except for one: the younger brother she loves with all her heart doesn’t have long to live. When George becomes captivated by a copy of a brand-new book called The Lion, the Witch and, the Wardrobe and begs her to find out where Narnia came from, there’s no way she can refuse.
Despite her timidity about approaching the famous author, Megs soon finds herself taking tea with the Oxford don and his own brother, imploring them for answers. What she receives instead are more stories . . . stories of Jack Lewis’s life, which she takes home to George.
Why won’t Mr. Lewis just tell her plainly what George wants to know?
The answer will reveal to Meg many truths that science and math cannot, and the gift she thought she was giving to her brother—the story behind Narnia—turns out to be his gift to her, instead: hope.
