Posted October 23, 2018 by meezcarrie in Amanda Barratt, Christian, cover reveal, historical, romance / 10 Comments

In the face of the greatest evil, the cruelest dictator, a few brave men and women dared to resist. One of them was a German pastor and theologian. His name was Dietrich Bonhoeffer. To the Nazis, he was a traitor. To the 21st century church, he is a hero.

To Maria von Wedemeyer, he was simply Dietrich—the man she loved.

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

AVAILABLE JUNE 9, 2019 from Kregel Publications

ECPA bestselling author Amanda Barratt fell in love with writing in grade school when she wrote her first story–a spinoff of Jane Eyre. Now, Amanda writes romantic, historical novels and novellas, penning stories of beauty and brokenness, set against the backdrop of bygone eras not so very different from our own. Her novel My Dearest Dietrich: A Novel of Bonhoeffer’s Lost Love, releases from Kregel Publications in June 2019.

She’s also the author of My Heart Belongs in Niagara Falls, New York: Adele’s Journey, as well as seven novellas with Barbour Publishing. Two of her novellas have been finalists in the FHL Reader’s Choice Awards.

Amanda lives in the woods of Michigan with her fabulous family, where she can be found reading way too many books, obsessing over her favorite BBC dramas, dreaming up her next novel, and trying to figure out a way to get on the first possible flight to England.

      Thanks so much for stopping by, Michelle! 🙂

      Yes, the novel is based on the true-life love story of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Maria von Wedemeyer. Dietrich was engaged to Maria during the final three years of his life–before he was executed for his role in the conspiracy against Hitler. There’s a volume of their love letters that I relied heavily upon for research, as well as lots of biographies. It’s truly beautiful and heartrending to read about their commitment to each other, and I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to tell their story! <3
