    One thought on “Evasions”

    1. The history was more interesting than the previous two, and I enjoyed the imaginative foray into life in the Lewis household. I had a hard time distinguishing Annie in this book from Kate in the previous two, though.Fun fact learned: If Jeshke's history is right, my son shares a name with C.S. Lewis' handyman! Score!

    2. This a good book. It is really captivating and well-written, set amid the dreaming spires of Oxford, and the Inklings, Scotland and England during the tumultuous era of WW2, and the Battle of Britain. Having just recently traveled to and seen London and Oxford, I found myself smiling and remembering all the wonderful places I had seen - Kensington in London and Paddington station, Keble College Magdalen College and the Kilns in Oxford were just lovely to read about now that I have been there! Ac [...]

    3. The third book of the Oxford Chronicals series by Melanie M. Jeschke. When I first picked up this book, excited to read it after reading the other two, I was disappointed that it was more about Davids mom and dad (Eric and Annie MacKenzie), and less about David and Kate, Austin and Yvette, and Natilie and Stuart. However, it wasn't long when I was totally hooked into the story that Eric and Annie tell their children about how they met, fell in loved and eventually got married. It wasn't an easy [...]

    4. Ah, this was a refreshing read. Jeschke's ability to weave spiritual, life-giving Truth into her stories is reminiscent of Robin Jones Gunn and Sarah Sundin. Besides, when C.S. Lewis is a character in the story, which is partially set in Oxford, I cannot help but fall in love with the book

    5. I was hesitant about this because I saw that it was a prequel - but she did a good job of mixing today in with the past and it worked. It was a very good conclusion to her series. i will read them again.

    6. Probably my favorite of Jeschke's books (thus far, that includes the Inklings trilogy - Expectations is the 3rd in the trilogy - and Jillian Dare). Expectations, set in Britain during WWII, is a prequel to the first book in the trilogy.

    7. Jeschke's attention to historical accuracy and careful interweaving of story lines makes for a delightful read. Entertaining, enlightening, and spiritually enriching.

    8. Good finale to the Oxford Chronicles, but I wouldn't mind hearing more about these characters and their future stories!
