In this fractured fairy-tale debut, narrator Susan Hanfield adds vocal perfection to Morrison's rich characters. Rapunzel knows only her tower and Witch, who takes care of her every need. When Jack comes to her tower with stories of injured fairies, cures, fairy magic harmful to Witch, and stories of Witch's lies, Rapunzel reluctantly agrees to descend into the world she's been taught to fear. Hanfield handles Rapunzel's emotional transitions from incredulous disbelief to all-consuming love for Witch and to her ultimate transformation from a spoiled and sheltered girl into a confident and trustworthy companion. Hanfield's portrayal of Witch switches effortlessly between sweet and motherly and cold and raspy. Hanfield nails each character no matter the role, creating a magnificent performance.
