I found her emphasis on the Holy Spirit as the central theme in Lewis's work a bit unusual--I don't remember him putting as much emphasis on that topic as Payne does. The author information on Goodreads seems to indicate that she was involved in charismaticism to some extent; perhaps that accounts for the emphasis? Considering the increasing value Lewis put on the sacraments as he grew older, however, I think it does make some sense to structure the book around her enlarged Real Presence idea.

How ruin had come and victory,
And both were a surprise.
