The sound of light : a novel / Sarah Sundin.

Sundin, Sarah, (author.).

"In WWII Denmark, Baron Henrik Ahlefeldt assumes the identity of a common shipyard worker, rowing messages to Sweden for the Resistance. His life depends on keeping his secret hidden-a task that proves challenging when he meets Else Jensen, an American physicist who seems to see right through him"-- Provided by publisher.
When the Germans march into Denmark, Baron Henrik Ahlefeldt assumes 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. 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 will discover if there is more power in speech-- or in silence. -- adapted from back cover
