The Sound of Light


The Sound of Light by Sarah Sundin is set in 1943 in Denmark during WWII. 

Else Jensen is an American physicist working in a Copenhagen research institute. Highly intelligent, she battles with her superior for a place as his assistant. She soon finds herself serving to help the Danish country. 

Henrik Ahlefeldt is an aristocratic athletic playboy who dislikes who he has become. He disguises himself as a simple laborer to help the resistance movement. Living in the same boarding house as Else, he battles with himself as he cannot reveal his identity. 

When they meet at a small town church, their secrets come to light and their affection grows. 

I had a difficult time at first, with all the Danish words. But learning more about the courage the people gave of themselves during this period made for interesting reading. It is evidenced by all the research that went into this novel. 

You would enjoy this book, especially if you are a history buff, and want to learn more by about WWII and what took place during that time. The story covers courage, forgiveness and an element of faith.

The weather is so delightful, I couldn't resist having tea out of doors.

The Tapestry of Grace


Augusta Dyck is a widow raising a daughter alone. She is content to teach school, but when the summer break comes around, she joins a group of ladies that is determined to help widows and orphans. 

Konrad lost his wife and is trying to raise his twin boys. He finds it difficult during the summer, as he needs to work and cannot keep an eye on them. After he himself having an accident as a boy, leaving him scarred, he seeks Augusta's help in finding a wife and mother for his boys. 

The story was pleasant to read, a bit drawn out, but it kept my interest. Great character development, with lots of lessons that are learned along the way. Definitely a faith based story, with old world values. Kim Vogel Sawyer is an excellent writer as testament to her other works. She weaves faith throughout as her characters find hope in their reliance of God.

We're ready

 I know most of you are buried under snow, but spring has definitely shown its face in Florida.

As I walk around my neighborhood, I am always so delighted when the Azaleas start to bloom.  Yes we have flowers blooming here.  It's been 82 degrees for the last week, which I think is absolutely glorious!

Take a walk with me.  This house is just down the street.

Such pretty Azaleas.

What a beautiful sky

the azaleas are starting to bloom at my house too

Come on Spring, we're all ready for you!
