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.

Rating: 5-stars


Sound of Light by Sarah Sundin is one of the best historical fiction novels. I love how this story focused on the Danish people and their time during the second world war. These group of brave, strong, and good people went out of their way to help. The time period was brilliantly crafted. I can feel the tensions and fear rising around me. The characters put everything on the line. Sound of Light shows us what a group of people can do despite the horrible circumstances. I have read so many stories taking place in the usual countries. This is one focused on Denmark. I am glad Sarah Sundin chose to write this book. The past came to life once again. It was an extraordinary adventure. One that I will not forget. Dr. Else and Henrik are unforgettable characters. They were my favorite.
