Book Review: The Sound of Light


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.

My Review

If you have never read a book by Sarah Sundin then you are missing out. She brings such life to her stories and the characters. This is what I really enjoy the most about reading a book by this author. While, I have read many books about WWI and WWII, I don't know much about the Danish Resistance. After reading this book, I am going to read up on it more.

I liked both Henrik (Hemming) and Dr. Else. They actually were not that much different from each other when it came down to it. They both wanted to help out. For which, they did in important ways. There is a bit of romance featured in this book. Yet, it was not prominent. I am glad as I did not really feel like the story needed to be a love story. The story itself was strong enough without it. Overall, I found this book to be a quick read and really enjoyed it.
