The Ice Queen

by Alice Hoffman
Read By Nancy Travis

      A tragic childhood impacts the life of an adult woman in Alice Hoffman's spellbinding tale of renewal and change at the hands of a lightning strike. Fire and ice, cool and warm, opposites attract, guide and entangle each other in Hoffman's magical tale in this barren, expertly written book now available on audio. Sure to please even the  most jaded fiction reader.

The reader, Nancy Travis, is best known for her roles in Three Men and a Baby and on Becker with Ted Danson. Ms. Travis brings the characters to life and adds an interesting dimension to Hoffman's writing. I especially enjoyed the road trip the characters take with a gift of potato chips and soda pop to visit the elderly father... but the man is a dragon. The fast forward between today and and Alice Hoffman's fairy tale brings an enjoyment seldom found in current offerings.
