A Severe Mercy

Sale price$15.99


A gut-wrenching memoir of two soulmates, marriage, faith, and grief, interwoven with the author's personal letters to-and-from C.S. Lewis. Fans of Lewis's writing will adore this first-hand account of love, doubt, and gripping loss. True human beauty at its finest! --Jonathan

A heart-rending love story described by its author as "the spiritual autobiography of a love rather than of the lovers" about the author's marriage and search for faith.


Vanauken chronicles the birth of a powerful pagan love borne out of the relationship he shares with his wife, Davy, and describes the growth of their relationship and the dreams that they share.

A beloved, profoundly moving account of the author's marriage, the couple's search for faith and friendship with C. S. Lewis, and a spiritual strength that sustained Vanauken after his wife's untimely death. Replete with 18 letters from C.S. Lewis, A Severe Mercy addresses some of the universal questions that surround faith--the existence of God and the reasons behind tragedy.
