Luther and Katharine Book Review – A Must Read!

Luther and Katharina: A Novel of Love and Rebellion

From the Back Cover

Katharina von Bora has seen nothing but the inside of cloister walls since she was five. In a daring escape, Katharina finds refuge with Martin Luther and seeks his help to pair her with the noble, wealthy husband she desires.

As class tensions and religious conflicts escalate toward the brink of war, Martin Luther believes that each day could be his last and determines he will never take a wife.

As the horrors of the bloody Peasant War break out around them, the proud Katharina and headstrong Martin Luther fight their own battle for true love, in one of the greatest love stories of history.

A novel of intrigue, and romance, plus history. Well this might be the greatest book I have read all summer, an avid Tudor Era Historian this was an interesting fictional glimpse into the private life of Martin Luther.

Jody Hedlund is a talented author with the characters leaping out of the page to show you their story, or pull you into their world. Tense and suspenseful the story keeps you on the edge until the very last page. It paints a picture of a timeless love story, one that I previously knew nothing about. Despite the fact that this is Historical Fiction, it is often easy to forget that it is indeed fiction while you are reading. This book was the first one I had read by Jody Hedlund and it was much better than I thought it would be. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars, it will stay on my keep shelf for years to come, definitely a re-read in my future!.
