The Sound of Light
by Sarah Sundin
When the Germans march into Denmark, Baron Henrik Ahlefeldt exchanges his nobility for anonymity, assuming a new identity so he can secretly row messages for the Danish Resistance across the waters to Sweden.
American physicist Dr. Else Jensen refuses to leave Copenhagen and abandon her research–her life’s dream. While printing resistance newspapers, she hears stories of the movement’s legendary Havmand–the merman–and wonders if the mysterious and silent shipyard worker living in the same boardinghouse has something to hide.
When the Occupation cracks down on the Danes, these two passionate people will discover if there is more power in speech . . . or in silence. Bestselling author of more than a dozen WWII novels, Sarah Sundin offers pens another story of ordinary people responding to extraordinary circumstances with faith, fortitude, and hope for a brighter future.
I always enjoy reading Sarah Sundin’s novels. They are such well-written, and authentic historical fiction. Once again, I came away amazed with the knowledge I gained and the information I learned.
WW2 never ceases to fascinate me, and this novel again (like Sundin does so often) showcases an aspect of the war that I knew next to nothing about.
The characters were intriguing. I especially enjoyed Henrik, and the lengths he went to for a cause he believed in.
if you love historical fiction, I recommend this novel. If you enjoy reading WW2 era stories, then you need to consider this a must read!
