    This is a brief overview of the author’s life. I read this as I was reading the historical fiction novel “Finding Mrs Lewis” by Patti Callahan. I wanted an overview of C.S. Lewis’s life and this book served the purpose. But if you want an in depth, researched biography, this is not the read for you.

    This is a brief observation of the life of one of the most revered authors and academics. Worth the read and re-read to delve into the life and spiritual journey of a man that has shaped many of my own views.

    A Life Revered Brief but to the point. Captures the essence of an iconic writer who met and battled all of life’s challenges without losing his soul.

    Headline required. I guess it wasn't clear to me 1) that I HAVE to review your books and 2) how to not write my entire review in the Headline and then not want to rewrite it all HERE tho I tried copying -- it didn't work. I didn't get a book today (Friday.) I'd written a nice review of this book you sent me but ... I didn't do it correctly so I didn't get another book today. Headline required.
