Narrator Jorjeana Marie's dreamy voice suits the story of the curious young poet Vicky, who finds herself entangled in an Antarctic conspiracy. When her boyfriend's elderly aunt gives Vicky the opportunity to visit Antarctica, she leaps at the adventure. Marie's youthful voice recounts Vicky's friendship with Aunt Serena, which develops over many philosophical conversations. Marie moves easily between the voices of Vicky's large family and the global passengers she travels with at sea, and she creates palpable joy as Vicky encounters the wonders and wildlife of the Southern Hemisphere. Listeners will feel the chill and desperation set in when Vicky is left stranded on an iceberg with only seals for company. L'Engle's granddaughter, Charlotte Voiklis, gives context for this work in her introduction. E.E.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2019]
