Hey, everybody! Welcome back to Tumnus’ Bookshelf, where we review any and all books written by, about, and inspired by CS Lewis, The Land of Narnia, and The Inklings. For today’s review, we will be looking at Patti Callahan’s Once Upon a Wardrobe!


Five of Five Shields

"I received Patti Callahan’s novel, Becoming Mrs. Lewis as a Valentine gift from my mother, and read it with great interest. I was blown away by how she crafted the story, telling it not like the biographies of Jack and Joy we’ve committed to memory but a real, living breathing world-wind romance. I came away from that story feeling like I actually “knew” Jack, Joy, Douglas, and their friends much better than I had before, and the book more than earned a spot on my book shelf. Imagine my delight and surprise when I learned that the books author, Patti Callahan had written another novel featuring CS Lewis.
