The Sound of Light by Sarah Sundin: Book Review

 *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

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.

Sarah Sundin is the bestselling author of When Twilight BreaksUntil Leaves Fall in Paris,and the popular WWII series Sunrise at Normandy, among others. She is a Christy Award finalist and a Carol Award winner, and her novels have received starred reviews from BooklistLibrary Journal, and Publishers Weekly, and have appeared on Booklist's "101 Best Romance Novels of the Last 10 Years." Sarah lives in California. Visit www.sarahsundin.com for more information.

When it comes to historical fiction, I find that I prefer stories that take place during or around WWII... and when it comes to WWII fiction, there is none who does it better in my opinion than Sarah Sundin! 

The research that goes into each and every novel is apparent within the pages, effortlessly weaving beautiful characters and romance with true historical facts. Fiction or no, I feel like I always walk away from each of her books learning something unique and new about WWII--- so far beyond what we are taught in the history books. The Sound of Light is absolutely no exception. This story was beautifully done, giving us a look at Denmark during this time. 

If you enjoy WWII fiction, this is certainly one to check out.
