''Once Upon a Wardrobe' is a beautiful follow-up to 'Becoming Mrs.
Lewis.' It's a love letter to books and stories with a meaningful
message. Megs and her family learn that fantastical tales are more
than mere ways to appease young children. Stories are nourishment
for the souls that need joy the most, and sometimes they're the
only thing that can help us understand life.' * The Washington Post
'This beautiful and soul-touching book is about death and dying, but it also reminds us that new chapters remain for those of us who are left behind.' * Historical Novel Society *
'Full of magic, nostalgia and a sister's love, Coben calls this novel 'a love letter to those of us obsessed with C.S. Lewis's Narnia series.'' * TODAY *
'Patti Callahan's powerful and captivating new novel ponders how the events in C.S. Lewis' life, particularly his childhood, inspired him to create the magical and mythical world of Narnia and the cast of characters inhabiting it . . . Readers will reach for it again and again, eager to be reminded that love will prevail and imagination leads people down fantastical paths. Some books are read and forgotten soon after; others linger forever in one's mind, popping up from time to time when something relevant sparks the memory. ONCE UPON A WARDROBE is certainly the latter and will be cherished by anyone who reads it.' * BookReporter.com *
