This magnificently evocative novel based on the life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer will introduce readers to a courageous Christian who joined the underground convinced that it was his duty to work for Hitler's defeat. In this, her first novel, Mary Glazener has captured the warmth, humanity, and intrigue of this young German pastor and theologian who at thirty-nine years of age was executed by the Nazis at Flossenburg concentration camp on April 9, 1945, for his part in the "Officers' Plot."
This highly readable work combines the essence of many stories of World War II---namely, the Church's struggle to survive the Third Reich; a family's commitment to save each other, their neighbors, and Germany; an extraordinary friendship between a teacher and his student; a resistance movement, filled with risk, espionage, and repeated set backs; and the many Christians and Germans who risked their lives to save the Jews.
Besides introducing Dietrich Bonhoeffer to his broadest audience ever, The Cup of Wrath will be a welcome addition to the growing corpus of Bonhoeffer books and bring those who know his work even closer to him, his family, and his theology.

Mary Glazener lives in Asheville, South Carolina. This, her first novel, draws on more than ten years’ research in the United States and Germany.Review:
"With close attention and curiosity I have accompanied Mary Glazener's daring effort to write this novel...I admired from the beginning her gift of style and especially her great talent to invent lively and true conversation between the leading figures of the story...Integrating into her novel the best available documents, she stived for the inner truth of the story...The reader sinks deeply into the life and events, into the life-and-death involvement, of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and his family." -- Eberhard Bethge, author of Dietrich Bonhoeffer: Man of Vision, Man of Courage
