Katharina Fortitude

Margaret Skea, MA 1978

Wittenberg 1525. The unexpected marriage of Martin Luther to Katharina von Bora has no fairytale ending.

A sign of apostasy to their enemies, and a source of consternation to their friends, it sends shock waves throughout Europe.

As they face persecution, poverty, war, plague and family tragedy, it is Katharina’s resilience and strength of character that shines through.

While this book can be read as a standalone, it is also the powerful conclusion to her story, which began in Katharina: Deliverance (Runner-up Historical Novel Society New Novel Award 2018).

Authentic, immersive and packed with drama.
