This is an easy-to-read retelling of William Shakespeare's "The Taming of the Shrew." In it, Katherina vows before God - in the marriage ceremony - to love, honor, and obey her husband, but very quickly she makes it apparent that she is not taking her vow seriously. Her husband, Petruchio, is determined to convince her to take that vow seriously. At the end of this book, Katherina makes a spirited defense of Christian marriage.
What thou seest when thou dost wake, Do it for thy true love take; Love and languish for his sake; Be it ounce, or cat, or bear, Pard, or boar with bristled hair
