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.

I received a complimentary copy from the publisher via NetGalley.  Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
