Katharina: Deliverance by Margaret Skea

Diane Andersen’s Review: 5-Stars

Having a lifelong interest and admiration for Katherine von Bora, wife of the 16th-century reformer, Dr. Martin Luther, I was excited to get the chance to read and review Margaret Skea’s novel, Katherina: Deliverance. Katherina von Bora, one of the unsung heroines of the Protestant Reformation, is too often overlooked for novelized subjects, despite being a historical writer’s dream on so many levels.

Elkin Hardcoves’ Review: 4.9-Stars

This novel convincingly portrays a young Katharina Von Bora, a woman who would have been long forgotten were it not for her own boldness and choice of husband. Like thousands of other young girls, Katharina was sent to a convent to relieve her family of the burden of raising and marrying her off. Unlike almost all who had come before her Katherina chose a different path than the convent at great risk, a path one might say indicates greater faith in God than a lifetime in a nunnery.
