Till We Have Faces

The Narnia movie is prompting heated discussion of C. S. Lewis and his allegedly heavy-handed Christian allegory. If you prefer a lighter touch with more sympathetic female characters, I highly recommend his last novel, Till We Have Faces: A Myth Retold. There's a nice synopsis (with spoilers) at the Literary Encyclopedia.
