I am reviewing a copy of Katarina: Deliverance through Sanderling and Netgalley:
It’s Germany 1505
At only five years old and after the recent death of her Mother Katerina’s Father and Step-Mother place her into a convent in Brehna. Katarina would never again see her Father.
Sixty five miles away at Erfurt in Thurgina a promising young law student Martin Luther turns his back on law in order to become a monk.
In 1523 on an Easter Sunday Katarina and Marin Luther would meet, a meeting that would change the course of their lives and reverberate through Christianity even to this day.
This novel offers a fascinating portrayal of Katarina Van Bora, the wife of Martin Luther.
I give Katarina: Deliverance five out of five stars!
