A chat with Sarah Sundin is always fun, so when I learned we'd be discussing her upcoming release, The Sound of Light, last October, I was excited. Well... we chatted, and it's finally time to share that interview. Listen in to what the title means, where Sarah came up with it, and the delightful story that she's got waiting for us. I'm glad this episode came out in time for me to get the 40% off and free shipping deal from Baker because I apparently didn't order it back when we chatted!

How I Fell in Love With This Haunting Title

I didn't know much about Denmark and WWII, so chatting with Sarah about The Sound of Light shed definite light (no pun intended) on the history of the Danes and how they stood up to Hitler... and got away with it (for the most part).

The Sound of Light tells the story of a physicist who meets a "slow, dull" guy who intrigues her in spite of herself. Come on... if that doesn't grab you... Maybe the fact that this slow dude is really an Olympic rower in disguise who uses his father's company as a front for who he is and how he helps Jews escape?  Yeah. That.

As always, Sarah Sundin has done her research and the result is a gripping story of resistance, protection, and ultimately love for God, our fellow man, and maybe... each other.

I don't know about you, but I can't wait for my copy of The Sound of Light to arrive.

The Sound of Light by Sarah Sundin

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.

You can also grab this book from Baker Book House at 40% off with free shipping! (which is cheaper than the Kindle version!)
