A SEVERE MERCY SHELDON VANAUKEN PDF

At this point in my life I kind of hate it. The two met in the s and fell in love. They are inseparable, naming their schooner the Grey Goose, "for the grey goose, if its mate is killed flies on alone and never takes another. A walled garden. A fence around a young tree to keep the deer from nibbling it. An fortified place with the walls and watchtowers gleaming white like the cliffs of England.

I had heard that A Severe Mercy was about a married couple, madly in love, and that thier faith and marriage are tested by the wife Davy converting to Christianity and therefore loving God more than her In Dress Your Family In Corduroy and Denim, David Sedaris tells of a time he was at a movie with his partner, Hugh.

I had heard that A Severe Mercy was about a married couple, madly in love, and that thier faith and marriage are tested by the wife Davy converting to Christianity and therefore loving God more than her husband, and her subsequent illness and death. I personally did not find their initial love story endearing, I thought it stifling. They decide that they would spend all of their time together, and if one had interests that the other did not share, the uninterested party had to go along and take part anyway so that there would be no secrets.

They write each other annoying poems and call each other cutesy names, ad nauseum, and then they decide to both explore Christianity together and start by reading C. The husband finishes one of the books and writes a letter to Lewis, who writes back. On that point I am wild with envy. Davy is far ahead on the spiritual walk and eventually leaves the husband behind, who makes a profession of faith of sorts shortly after.

Now their annoying story includes going to church, holding Bible studies and singing hymns in the night. At this point in the story I invoked David Sedaris, paging ahead to when she will become sick and die, since I was hoping at that point the story would become more interesting.

It did not. If anything, it became even more trite and maudlin. After she finally dies, Sheldon imagines what would have happened had Davy lived, and surmises that either their love would have died, or he with his lesser faith would have dragged Davy down and made her less of a believer.

Therefore, God showed his "severe mercy" in taking Davy, thereby preserving their love for all eternity and also calling Davy home while her faith is strong. Am I the only person on Goodreads who found this book to be a complete disappointment, despite the fact that letters from C. Lewis are included in the narrative?
