Publisher Comments:

“Simply great . . . Burns is as good a writer about the South as youre going to read for a long, long time.” —Atlanta Journal-Constitution

A classic bestseller, Cold Sassy Tree is the story of Will Tweedy, a fourteen-year-old boy coming of age at the turn of the century in rural Georgia. His grandfather, a recent widower, inspires a whirlwind of gossip in their small town when he marries a woman half his age. Brimming with characters who are wise, unimpeachably pious, and deliciously irreverent, it is a resplendent treasure. The unfinished sequel, Leaving Cold Sassy, follows Will Tweedy into adulthood, as he grapples with the influences of the modern world on his cherished southern hometown.

Olive Ann Burns (1924-1990) was born on a farm in Banks County, Georgia. She received a degree in journalism from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and for ten years was on the Sunday magazine staff of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. She turned to writing as a respite during treatment for cancer. Her first novel, Cold Sassy Tree, made her a best-selling author at age 60.

Synopsis:

Two modern classics of fiction in one beautiful, hardcover volume.

Synopsis:

The classic coming-of-age bestseller and its unfinished sequel appearing for the first time in a single edition.

Synopsis:

Two candid and intensely intimate books from one of the most influential Christian apologists of the twentieth century.

Synopsis:

"If wit and wisdom, style and scholarship are requisites to passage through the pearly gates, Mr. Lewis will be among the angels." —The New Yorker

C.S. Lewis was an unfailingly honest and acutely perceptive observer of humanity. In Surprised by Joy, he recounts his search for joy, a spiritual journey that led him from a traditional Christian childhood in Belfast to a youthful atheism and, finally, back to a confident Christianity. The Four Loves, a candid, wise and deeply personal book, is a reflection on the four basic kinds of human love—affection, friendship, erotic love, charity—and all of the pleasures and risks that accompany them.

C.S. Lewis (1898-1963) gained international renown for an impressive array of beloved works of both popular and scholarly literary criticism, childrens literature, fantasy literature, and numerous books on theology. Surprised by Joy and The Four Loves are among his most celebrated achievements, as are Out of the Silent Planet, The Chronicles of Narnia, and The Screwtape Letters.

Synopsis:

First published in 1955, C. S. Lewiss autobiographicalSurprised by Joyhas become a deeply important book for those concerned with the compatibility of the rational and the spiritual. It is an honest and intimate account of his own spiritual journey to confident Christianity. InThe Four Loves, he reflects on the four basic kinds of human loveaffection, friendship, erotic love, charityand all of the pleasures and risks that accompany them. This edition brings together two of Lewiss most compelling and meaningful books, for believers and nonbelievers alike.
