When C. S. Lewis married Joy Davidman, an American divorcee with children, there was much surprised comment. They had a few short years of happiness in which time Joy was diagnosed with bone cancer, experienced a powerful healing sufficient to walk again, and a few years later relapsed and died. This account is Lewis's catharsis - in writing his grief out he also came to terms with it. The account is pain, harrowing pain, and utterly real. This book is still recommended today by professional organisations for those undergoing training in bereavement counselling.
