Daughter of the Reformation
A Historical Perspective of the Life and Times of the Wife of Martin Luther.

 In 1520, Europe was enveloped in a darkness of superstition, ignorance, and spirit. Then, light began to creep into the cottages and castles. A timely congruence of nationalism, the printing press, and a monk named Martin Luther gave rise to a new hunger and hope for personal and spiritual dignity and the freedom to learn. The unchallenged and entrenched authority of the Church over the individual was about to crumble as the light that scattered the shadows gave the common peasant the gift to read, to write, to think, and to find joy in faith. That light even penetrated the thick stone walls of Nimbschen Convent of Grimma in Saxony Germany.

This is the story of one young woman from that convent, Catharina von Bora, who played a powerful part in the Protestant Reformation and in the lives of men and women to this day.

I have published several books, and publishing with Bill Huff was by far the most satisfying book publishing experience I've had. He makes a real effort to balance the author's gifts with the needs of the target audience. His suggestions for product development are well-founded and offered in a dignified manner. His assistance was outstanding at every stage of the process.
