A Severe MercyAlexandra Irvine, via The Good Book Stall
First published 1977.
This book charts the life of two young Americans from the first heady days of falling in love, through some fifteen years of happy marriage, until the young wife’s untimely death from a diseased liver and the husband’s inconsolable grief. It is, however, much more than a poignant love story. It tells also of their struggle to come to terms with Christianity, something that they had always mocked but which now they are beginning to consider seriously. Finally they both come to accept it, having been greatly influenced by some of the contacts made during a time spent at Oxford in research. Of these people the most important one is C.S.Lewis and copies of many of the letters that passed between them are included in this account. This is a delightful book. As a film, one could easily imagine it reducing the viewers to tears. As a true story, it is an elegant testimony to both human and divine love.
