C.S. Lewis created pure magic as he walked us through that wardrobe door and into Narnia. Callahan taps into that magic to give us this nostalgic story of family, hope, and love.

George has lived long past what doctors expected. His poor heart physically can’t take much more. But he’s learned that good literature, particularly The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, gives his heart all the life and joy he can desire. Knowing C.S. Lewis is a tutor at his sister’s college, George sends her, Meg, on a quest to find out where Narnia originated.

Thus, follows an endearing journey between Meg, George, and Lewis. Callahan weaves together facts from CS Lewis’ life and pieces of his classic story together alongside the heartwarming fictional storyline that spotlights the deep bond between a brother and sister.

Callahan’s messaging resonated strongly with me: there is great power in both family bonds and the written word.

This book would be best enjoyed under a cozy blanket with a hot cuppa…even better if snow flurries are forecast!

Thank you Patti Callahan, Harper Muse Books, and NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review an advanced copy of this book.
