The Sound of Light Cover Reveal!

To help their country, he must silence his voice—and she must find hers.

The Sound of Light by Sarah Sundin

Today I’m pleased to reveal the cover for my upcoming novel, The Sound of Light, which is scheduled to release from Revell Books on February 7, 2023. This is the third of three standalone novels, each following Americans living in Nazi Europe before and during World War II.

The Sound of Light is now available for pre-order at Baker Book House (40% off and free shipping!), Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and BAM, and will be available on other sites soon. Pre-orders for the e-book and audiobook will be available at a later date.

The Sound of Light

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.

    I love your WWII novels. I was born VJ Day. My grandaddy always called me his VJ Day baby❤️
    I have always had an interest in WWII time period.
    You are such an interesting, factual, fiction, author, I would read anything you publish. I would read even a different time period, if you wrote, although WWII is my very favorite.

    After 3 years of classes and required reading I’m finally able to read for pleasure. My first book is Thriugh Waters Deep I bought 2 years ago

  12. I am a serious fan of WWII history and CF fiction, especially since my Dad, Rolf Fostervold, (who later became a Christian after the war, and a missionary in Paraguay, South America, where my brother and I grew up working with the Ache’ tribe), was a WWII veteran on the USS Saratoga aircraft carrier. I’ve always seemed closer to all veterans because of my Dad’s history as a vet, plus growing up as a “missionary kid,” as well as having compassion for people as a pastor’s wife. . . My husband pastors a church in Deer Lodge, MT, where I also play my Paraguayan harp, to prayerfully help people find hope and encouragement in the Lord. If you send me your mailing address, I’d love to send you my harp CD with all original songs titled Lual Krautter Tis True. . . As an avid reader of CF, especially of WWII fiction, (like yours), I also really enjoy RS (Romantic Suspense). Would love to win a print copy of any of your excellent books! 🙂 God bless!

    Have loved recommending your books here in Tullahoma. They have been so well received. Wish you could come back again as we would love to have a special event to honor you for writing about Camp Forrest. There is a movement growing to have a Camp Forrest Museum here. Your book contributed to the increased interest in Camp Forrest. Thank you!
