The Ice Queen...



The Ice Queen by Alice Hoffman

Hoffman's writing continues to excite and amaze me, even if the plot of this slim novel (barely 200 pages) failed to grab me and hold on to me.

This time Hoffman portrays a woman "turned to ice inside" after a lightning strike, and the passionate affair she embarks on with another lightning victim - this one who burns with fire. Family drama, workplace woes, and a group of survivors round out this suspense-your-disbelief tale.

I still love Hoffman's writing, but this was not my favorite of her books...
