A staggering love illuminating the dark corners of a Nazi prison
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
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.
Based on detailed historical research, this true love story
is at once beautiful and heartrending. My Dearest Dietrich
sheds new light on a world-famous theologian . . . and the
woman who changed his life.
