New York Times best-selling author Patti Callahan offers this uplifting tale of sibling affection, which takes place in England in 1950. Megs Devonshire sets out to fulfill the last wish of her younger brother, George, by uncovering the truth behind his favorite story, C. S. Lewis’s The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. The answer provides hope and healing and a magical journey for anyone whose life has ever been changed by a book.
Fascinated with the author’s The Chronicles of Narnia series, George presses Megs to ask the renowned writer, “Where did Narnia come from?” Despite her initial fear about approaching Lewis, a professor at Oxford University where the logical young woman is a studying math and science, Megs soon finds herself taking tea with him and his brother, Warnie. Through a series of meetings at the brothers’ home, she realizes the gift she thought she was giving to her brother—an answer to his question—turns out to be Lewis’s gift to her: hope.
This hardbound edition of Once Upon a Wardrobe pairs with The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, the 2023 Victoria Classics Book Club’s first quarter selections. (Sold Separately)
