Reveals a personal side of the 20th century's most famous Christian writer

On October 26, 1950, C. S. Lewis wrote the first of more than a hundred letters to an American woman he would never meet but maintained a correspondence with for the rest of his life.

Ranging broadly in subject matter, Lewis's letters discuss topics as profound as the love of God and as frivolous as preferences in cats. Lewis himself clearly had no idea that these letters would ever see publication, but they reveal facets of his character little known even to devoted readers of his fantasy and scholarly writings — a man patiently offering encouragement and guidance to another Christian through the joys and sorrows of life.

This book stands as a fascinating and moving testimony to the remarkable humanity and even more remarkable Christianity of C. S. Lewis.
— J. R. R. Tolkien
"Deeply interesting and very moving."
— Robert Cromie in Chicago Tribune
"A literary gem."
— Christianity Today
"The reader will discover testimony for the patient faith and generous life of the private man who was this century's most famous Christian apologist. . . . Lewis readers will treasure these letters for the glimpse they offer into the personal witness of the man."
