From the links of St. Andrews, Scotland, to the blitz of London in World War II, RAF pilot Eric MacKenzie embarks on a dark journey of the soul as he battles the Nazis, personal loss, and bitterness. Evading the bombing raids and her own distressing realizations, American nurse Annie Little finds refuge and renewed faith at the Kilns, home of C.S. Lewis. Eric and Annie reveal their turbulent love story decades later when their daughter Natalie and Lord Stuart Devereux seek wisdom for their own future.
Unforeseen tragedy, unplanned pregnancy, and undermined faith lead to hope, commitment, and restoration in this compelling prequel to Inklings and Expectations, that will enthrall romance readers, history buffs, and devotees of Lewis and Tolkien alike.
