The Sound of Light by Sarah Sundin // Review

My Review: 

A thrilling story of courage, faith and loyalty set during the German occupation of Denmark. 

As the tension grows in Denmark a playboy baron and a compassionate scientist find themselves working with the resistance to save innocent lives. Henrik is a man with a past full of regrets, admirable and selflessly he works to counter the German advances. I admired the ways that he had changed from his previous ways, becoming measured and unassuming, yet compassionate and noble even as a man of few words. 

Dr. Else Jensen is  a gifted scientist fighting to make her mark in a man's world that would delegate her to secretarial tasks. I admired her self-control, loyalty, and could relate to her dilemma of when to stand up and when to stay silent. Else is a faithful friend, and courageous woman, I loved her friendship with Hemming, seeing him open her eyes to a while new side of life. 

This is a gripping historical read. realistically bringing to the plight of the Danish people fighting for their country. I loved the little details like the mimeograph, that made this story shine. A well written read that swept me up, and I didn't want to put it down. I really enjoyed learning more about a side of  the war that isn't written about as frequently, as well as the rich Danish history. A compelling novel of faith, courage and love, you won't want to miss it!

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
