'Joy' tells the fascinating untold story of C.S. Lewis' brilliant and intellectual wife, Joy Davidman Gresham.
Although many will recognise Joy from C.S.Lewis' memoirs (Surprised By Joy) and the film about their relationship called Shadowlands, you will be surprised to read that she has her own captivating story to tell. Through years of interviews and research, including previously undiscovered documents Abigail Santamaria has brought this women to life as an accomplished yet troubled novelist, award-winning poet, mother, divorcee, social activist and unrelenting spiritual seeker.
"A biography about the brilliant and brash New Yorker who captured C.S. Lewis's heart was long overdue... There are so many surprises in it that it might even have been titled Surprised by Joy -- if that title weren't already taken." -- Eric Metaxas, New York Times best-selling author of 'Bonhoeffer'.
Joy's quest for meaning took her from atheism, to Dianetics (the controversial pseudo-science/religion of sci-fi writer Ron L. Hubbard), to C.S. Lewis where she found faith, hope and love. Her turbulent life journey will resonate with both romantics and intellectuals.
Like all great biographies, Abigail writes with a passionate enthusiasm for her subject helping readers to peer into Joy's heart and soul. She portrays Joy with refreshing honesty shining a light on all her achievements and misfortunes. By the end of this gripping biography you will be emotionally torn between falling in love with this inspiring, liberal thinker and taken back by her often abrasive personality.
A sensational read for all C.S. Lewis fans and those curious about why he was such a prolific writer.
Joy by Abigail Santamaria was published by SPCK in August 2015
