In late 1956, an item in The Times of London stunned England's literary set. Confirmed bachelor and celebrated Christian apologist C.S. Lewis announced his marriage to Joy Davidman Gresham. His choice could not have been more unlikely. Joy was an American, a divorcee, an ex-communist, and a former atheist. Lyle Dorsett’s engaging biography, Surprised by Love, explores how this extraordinary and fascinating woman made a great impact on Lewis and his writings in the short time they had together.
