One of the most scandalous love stories of history: a renegade monk marries a run-away nun, and in the process our understanding of love between man and woman takes on a historically new meaning. So too the love between God and people, and with it our very understanding of religion. This is the story of two passionate and revolutionary individuals who believed that God had created them to be free, to love with soul, mind and with their bodies, and to live their very own life sweeping aside church dogma and social convention. ^Based on extensive research (including all of Luther's letters to Katharina--hers had not been considered important enough at the time to be kept), Asta Scheib's novel is a sensitive and critical portrait of the man Martin Luther from the perspective of his wife. It is as well a beautiful description of the woman Katharina von Bora who held her own strong and influential self in a relationship that was neither simple nor easy. ^
-Publisher

This sweeping historical novel traces the unconventional friendship of two unusual & unforgettable people. Well-researched & poetically written, this novel gives a sensitive account of their intimate relationship & a vivid sense of the tumultuous time in which they lived.
-Publisher

This book covers the scandal surrounding Martin Luther's marriage to Katharina von Bora in 1525.
