Based on the true story of C.S. Lewis, this film is about the agonizing spiritual crisis of C.S. Lewis when his wife died from cancer. The love, grief, pain, and sorrow were so shattering to Lewis that his basic Christian beliefs, magnificently communicated in his many books, were now called into serious doubt. But he picked up the pieces and moved out of the depressing "shadowlands," realizing that "real life has not even begun yet."

Turkey : a short history by Norman Stone( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For six hundred years Turkey was at the heart of the Ottoman Empire, a superpower that brought Islam to the gates of Vienna and stretched to North Africa, the Persian Gulf and the river Volga. Stone examines the reasons for the astonishing rise and the long decline of this world empire and how for its last hundred years it became the centre of the Eastern Question, as the Great Powers argued over a regime in its death throes. Then, as now, the position of Turkey--a country balanced between two continents--provoked passionate debate. Norman Stone concludes the book with a trenchant examination of the Turkish republic created in the aftermath of the First World War, where East and West, religion and secularism, tradition and modernization are vibrant and sometimes conflicting elements of national identity"--Publisher's description, p. [2] of dust jacket
