Kitty, My Rib (Katherine Luther)
1 in stock (can be backordered)
A novel about Katharine Luther or “Kitty” who was the woman behind the great man Martin Luther. From her narrow escape from the Nimbschen convent, to a marriage with an unromantic beginning, Katharine was soon surrounded by Luther’s love and became his most-loved “Kitty, my rib.” Kitty mellowed Luther’s harsher side, kept the household from bankruptcy despite her husband’s generosity, and enhanced his life with the joys and fullness of family living.
With warmth and empathy E. Jane Mall weaves together historical fact and fascinating insight in this exciting and highly readable novel.
Author E. Jane Mall carefully researched this very special novel while her husband, an army chaplain, was stationed in Germany.
