Historical Fiction Spotlight: Katharina Fortitude, by Margaret Skea

New on Amazon UK and Amazon US

Eagerly-awaited conclusion to Katharina Deliverance - Runner-up in the Historical Novel Society New Novel Award 2018. 

‘We are none of us perfect, and a streak of stubbornness is what is needed in dealing with a household such as yours, Kat… and with Martin.’ 

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. 

Yet, as they face persecution, poverty, war, plague and family tragedy, Katharina’s resilience and strength of character shines through. 

While this book can be read as a standalone, it is also the powerful conclusion to her story, begun in Katharina: Deliverance.

'Beautifully written and meticulously researched - historical fiction at its best.' BooksPlease
