Luther and Katharina by Jody Hedlund

I wish this could have kept going because I was enjoying learning about Martin Luther and his wife Katharina. I had a very hard time putting this book down. Jody gave these people life. I always cringe when I hear how terrible the church could be in its early days. I am so glad things have improved over the years. Both Martin Luther and Katharina grew as they got to know each other. I received a copy of this book from the Blogging for Books program for a fair and honest opinion.  More About the Author

Biography

Jody Hedlund is an award-winning and bestselling author of inspirational historical romances for both youth and adults.
As a busy mama-writer, she has the wonderful privilege of teaching her crew of 5 children at home. In between grading math papers and giving spelling tests, she occasionally does a load of laundry and washes dishes. When she’s not busy being a mama, you can find her in front of her laptop working on another of her page-turning stories. 
She loves reading almost as much as she loves writing, especially when it also involves chocolate and coffee. 

Overview
She was a nun of noble birth. He, a heretic, a reformer…an outlaw of the Holy Roman Empire.  
In the 16th century, nun Katharina von Bora’s fate fell no further than the Abbey. Until she read the writings of Martin Luther.

 

His sweeping Catholic church reformation—condemning a cloistered life and promoting the goodness of marriage—awakened her desire for everything she’d been forbidden. Including Martin Luther himself. 

 

Despite the fact that the attraction and tension between them is undeniable, Luther holds fast to his convictions and remains isolated, refusing to risk anyone’s life but his own. And Katharina longs for love, but is strong-willed. She clings proudly to her class distinction, pining for nobility over the heart of a reformer. They couldn’t be more different. 

 

But as the world comes tumbling down around them, and with Luther’s threatened life a constant strain, these unlikely allies forge an unexpected bond of understanding, support and love. 

 

Together, they will alter the religious landscape forever.
