This Shining Land by Rosalind Laker

This Shining LandThis Shining Land by Rosalind Laker

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the story of Joanna Ryen and Steffen Larsen, a young couple who joined the Norway’s Resistance during World War II.

Even if it’s not the main plot, this story reminds me the story of “The Heroes of Telemark” which was the Norwegian heavy water sabotage. The goal of the Resistance was to prevent the German attempt to develop a nuclear weapon.

I won’t bother anyone explaining the technical and physical details about this failed essay.

A movie was made based on these Heroes of Telemark (1965) starring Kirk Douglas, Richard Harris and Michael Redgrave among others.

This a very different book by Rosalind Laker, a writter who is more known by her romantic novels.
