About Becoming Mrs. Lewis
In a most improbable friendship, she found love. In a world where women were silenced, she found her voice.
Now a USA Today, Publisher's Weekly, and The Globe and Mail Bestseller!
From New York Times bestselling author Patti Callahan comes an exquisite novel of Joy Davidman, the woman C. S. Lewis called “my whole world.” When poet and writer Joy Davidman began writing letters to C. S. Lewis—known as Jack—she was looking for spiritual answers, not love. Love, after all, wasn’t holding together her crumbling marriage. Everything about New Yorker Joy seemed ill-matched for an Oxford don and the beloved writer of Narnia, yet their minds bonded over their letters. Embarking on the adventure of her life, Joy traveled from America to England and back again, facing heartbreak and poverty, discovering friendship and faith, and against all odds, finding a love that even the threat of death couldn’t destroy.
In this masterful exploration of one of the greatest love stories of modern times, we meet a brilliant writer, a fiercely independent mother, and a passionate woman who changed the life of this respected author and inspired books that still enchant us and change us. Joy lived at a time when women weren’t meant to have a voice—and yet her love for Jack gave them both voices they didn’t know they had.
At once a fascinating historical novel and a glimpse into a writer’s life, Becoming Mrs. Lewis is above all a love story—a love of literature and ideas and a love between a husband and wife that, in the end, was not impossible at all.

Pints with Jack
C.S. Lewis podcast and video series
David and Matt met socially at a party in 2017 and, before long, they were soon talking about the works of C.S. Lewis. Soon afterwards, they began a C.S. Lewis reading group in San Diego. Not long after, they launched a podcast so that friends outside of California could participate with the book club and in 2018 they recorded a thirteen-part video series in an attempt to help more people to encounter the works of C.S. Lewis, as well as the truth and beauty of Christianity.
In his sixty-five years of life, C.S. Lewis was poet, novelist, academic lecturer, lay theologian and Christian apologist. Lewis, known to his friends as “Jack”, was raised in a nominally Christian household, but soon fell away from Christianity and became an ardent and avowed atheist.
However, in his early thirties, he returned to belief in God, and then eventually to faith in Christ. Putting his considerable literary talents at the service of the Faith, Lewis became one of the most well-known and beloved Christian writers of the 20th Century.
Born in Holland (Michigan), Matt was raised a Christian. His faith grew significantly during a trip to Israel after High School, where he walked in the footsteps of Jesus and His Apostles.
During his time at Notre Dame, he wrestled greatly with Christianity, nearly becoming an atheist during his year studying at Oxford, England. Thankfully, he was introduced to C.S. Lewis by a friend, who showed him the real truth and beauty of Christianity for the first time.
Born in England, David was raised in a Christian home, but it was at University where his faith came alive. After working as a Software Engineer in England for several years, David moved to the United States in 2008, where he settled in San Diego.
He is involved in many ministries and runs a local C.S. Lewis reading group.He writes at RestlessPilgrim.net and travels around the States giving talks on Scripture, Church History and Evangelization.
