Her husband's story is well known: Martin Luther's nailing of 95 theses on the door o Wittenberg's castle church on October 31, 1517, was a turning point in history. Yet it was his dear wife Katie whom Luther called the "Morning Star of Wittenberg."
After a dramatic escape from a convent in Catholic territory, former nun Katharine von Bora married Wittenberg's famous preacher and was a remarkable helper and companion to the German Reformer. A courageous lady, a loving wife and mother, and an able selfless steward of vast responsibilities, Katharine Luther is a sterling example of what a woman, by God's grace, can be. This fully illustrated storybook brings to life this exciting part of history for readers of all ages to enjoy.
