Baron Henrik Ahlefeldt was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and a skill for wasting his potential. When the Nazis steamroll into Denmark in 1940, his rowing skills save a friend’s life and catapult him into resistance work, where the potential for redemption is as high as it is for danger. Meanwhile, physicist Elsebeth Jensen is railroaded by her male colleagues, who push her projects to the backburner. As her Jewish friends are threatened by increasingly stringent laws, she is about to find out what courage really means. Just as light hitting the sharp edge of Jensen’s beloved prisms reveals a rainbow, Sundin’s prose reveals the deepest emotions of the human heart. Full of gorgeous imagery and metaphor, this novel demonstrates that one person doing the right thing might just save a nation.
VERDICT Each Sundin (Until Leaves Fall in Paris) novel tops the last as she delves deeper into the Christian psyche. Fans of Lisa Wingate, Lynn Austin, and secular author Hazel Gaynor will treasure this moving tale.
