Their revolutionary marriage was arguably one of the most scandalous and intriguing in history. Yet five centuries later, we still know little about Martin and Katharina Luther's life as husband and wife.

Against all odds, the unlikely union worked, over time blossoming into the most tender of love stories. This unique biography tells the riveting 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.

"No wonder it is sometimes said that the impact of this marriage was as great in the social sphere as the Ninety-five Theses in the religious sphere. Here is a story of a growing love accompanied by sorrow, the joys of marriage, and faith in God's providence. These well-researched pages are filled with unexpected treasures."
- Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer, Pastor Emeritus, Moody Church, Chicago
