Summary
Their revolutionary marriage was arguably one of the most scandalous and intriguing in history. Against all odds, the unlikely union worked, blossoming over time into the most tender of love stories. This biography tells the story of two extraordinary people and their extraordinary relationship, offering refreshing insights into Christian history and illuminating the Luthers' profound impact on the institution of marriage, the effects of which still reverberate today. By the time they turn the last page, readers will have a deeper understanding of Luther as a husband and father and will come to love and admire Katharina, a woman who, in spite of her pivotal role, has been largely forgotten by history. Together, this couple experienced joy and grief, triumph and travail. This book brings their private lives and their love story into the spotlight and offers insights into our own twenty-first-century understanding of marriage
