THE SOUND OF LIGHT by Sarah Sundin, Reviewed by Paula Shreckhise #ReleaseDay

“Sometimes silence takes much courage.”

So many secrets that cannot be shared. Denmark under the German occupation in 1943 proved eventful for the Danish Resistance. Baron Henrik Ahlefeldt has several identities that would be dangerous to reveal. Dr. Else Jensen, a physicist at the Neils Bohr lab has secrets too. When Else and Henrik meet at a boardinghouse, all they want to do is keep their secrets and help Free Denmark movement and not let the other know.

The author plots the story perfectly with romance, friendships, villains and lets us feel the tension of danger that the characters experience. This was a glimpse into a different aspect of WWII, telling how unusually Denmark was treated by the Germans, although for some it was dangerous indeed.

I learned so much about spycraft of the Resistance and how hard it was for a female scientist to work in a lab where not all welcomed smart women. As usual, Ms. Sundin has done excellent research and adds interesting details.

Highly recommended for those who love historical fiction.

--the merman--and wonders if the mysterious and silent shipyard worker living in the same boardinghouse has something to hide.

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.
