Lots of 5 star reviews on Goodreads. I just wonder how many knows the real story about Martin and Katharina. Yes, they had a happy marriage, but it wasn't a love story. They didn't marry for love. Martin even stated that she wasn't even the first choice. She needed a husband and he needed a wife. That's it! It's hard to enjoy reading a book when it feels like the author is taking way to much liberties with history.
