Book Review: Luther and Katharina

Luther and Katharina: A Novel of Love and Rebellionis a historical fiction novel about Martin Luther and his wife, Katharina.  She comes from a very different background than Martin and the resulting circumstances of their meeting and falling in love are quite incredible.  

This book caused me to search into "real" history a bit more to separate the fact from the fiction.  The portions that I thought had to be fiction were actually based more in fact than I ever could have imagined.  Unfortunately, this book had too much violence (which was a bit graphic) for my taste, especially coming from a Christian publisher.  Other than that, the book was enjoyable and kept me interested.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
