BECOMING MRS. LEWIS won the Christy Award for 2019 Book of the Year. This honor is given to the novel considered by the foundation to be the best written with a perspective of faith. It is an engrossing look at the real-life romantic relationship between the great C.S. Lewis and poet Joy Davidson. Joy begins by sending letters back and forth with Lewis, searching for spiritual guidance as the relationship with her husband floundered, but found much, much more. Despite being ill-suited for each other at first glance, with Lewis being a legendary author and Oxford grad, while Joy was a little-known New York poet, their relationship grew into something over their letters and then trips across the Atlantic. Eventually, their love for each other dramatically changes both their lives. A truly stunning and gorgeous tale!

PATTI CALLAHAN (pictured below from our Wall of Fame) is a writer's writer. She's published eleven books, including many New York Times best-sellers, but this Homegirl (she lives in Mountain Brook, Alabama) is usually present when a visiting author comes to town. She supports the sisters and brothers of her craft and frequently promotes their books more heavily than her own. She is definitely the "Miss Congeniality" of the trade, and one of the most popular in the business. Thank you Patti Callahan for signing our books.
