Publisher's Summary

Renowned German pastor and theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer is famous for his resistance to the Nazi regime and for his allegiance to God over government. But what few realize is that the last years of his life also held a love story that rivals any romance novel.

Maria von Wedemeyer knows the realities of war. Her beloved father and brother have both been killed on the battlefield. The last thing this spirited young woman needs is to fall for a man under constant surveillance by the Gestapo. How can she give another piece of her heart to a man so likely to share the same final fate? Yet when Dietrich Bonhoeffer, an old family friend, comes to comfort the von Wedemeyers after their losses, she discovers that love isn't always logical.

Dietrich himself has determined to keep his distance from romantic attachments. There is too much work to be done for God, and his involvement in the conspiracy is far too important. But when he encounters a woman whose intelligence and conviction match his own, he's unprepared for how easy it is to give away his heart.

With their deep love comes risk - and neither Dietrich nor Maria is prepared for just how great that risk soon becomes.

A true story of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and his love Maria

Beautifully written and keeps you engaged and on the edge of your seat. Dietrich and Maria were given an untimely love story, it seems, by God. But even love and deep devotion can grow in a time of utter evil and despair. I’m so grateful for this God-glorifying story and what an inspiration it is to me. Dietrich and Maria were raw and real in their emotions: fear, excitement, devastation, longing, love, and devotion to God. In a time in America where our freedoms are being taken away and the government, culture, and corporations are favoring one line of thinking I am so thankful for their example. May God give His confessing church the courage and boldness to share the Gospel and stand for truth, unwavering. Thank you Maria for publishing these precious letters and making your life vulnerable to the world. ❤️
