Join the beloved creator of The Chronicles of Narnia in a biography detailing his experience with the love and loss of his American fan—and wife—Joy Gresham. Shadowlands originated as a BBC television film (1985). Later adaptations include the 1993 film starring Anthony Hopkins, the stage play, and a book written by the BBC film's “consultant,” Brian Sibley.
When Gresham's trip to England results in a formal meeting with Lewis, the pair discover their differing minds inspire each other to take on fresh perspectives of the world. Their eventual marriage takes a toll, however, after Gresham is diagnosed with cancer. The revelation stirs Lewis's own faith as he prepares for the grief that lies ahead.
