    My Dearest Dietrich (paperback)

    A Novel of Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Lost Love

    Discover the true love story of the world-famous theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer . . . and the incredible woman who changed his life

    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.

    Dietrich himself has determined to keep his distance from romantic attachments. There is too much work to be done for God, and Dietrich's involvement in the conspiracy is far too important.

    But when these two brave, intelligent people encounter each other, they discover that deep love can happen unexpectedly--and, despite the danger, may be worth the risk after all.

    Based on detailed historical research of both Maria's and Dietrich's lives, this true love story is at once beautiful and heartrending.

    "Barratt humanizes eminent German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer in this gripping historical romance. . . both dramatic and tragic. . . . [This] moving romance will appeal to readers of Bonhoeffer as well as fans of WWII espionage thrillers." --Publishers Weekly

    "As beautiful as it is brave. . . . This is a multifaceted story of the highest stakes and the deepest loves." --Jocelyn Green, award-winning author of A House Between Two Shores
