Pamela Klein's crisp narration of this account of the friendship between Dorothy Sayers and C.S. Lewis helps convey both writers' personalities and perspectives. The assertive mystery author Sayers initiated correspondence with Lewis via fan mail, kicking off a fifteen-year friendship that ended with her death in 1957. A man of intellect and faith best known for his Narnia tales, Lewis appreciated connecting with a like-minded woman, as Sayers was also a Christian apologist. Author Gina Dalfonzo posits that this cross-gender friendship of equals helped pave the way for traditionalist Lewis's relationship with his wife, Joy Davidman. Klein's clear voice and British accent especially sparkle in the narration of the friends' letters, which accentuates the wit and depth of this "meeting of minds."
