Book of the Week: A Severe Mercy

by Sheldon Vanauken.

C. S. Lewis was their mentor and friend. When tragedy struck, he became a guide, a comforter of piercing insight and compassion. His letters are carefully preserved and reproduced in this moving account of the extraordinary love between Sheldon Vanauken and Jean Davis. This beautiful account bears witness, not just to the relationship between Van and Davy, but to the understanding which grew between the two men who both had to suffer the severe pain of loss.
