by | Read by Ruth Negga

Children Ages 6+ • 35 mins. • Unabridged • © 2020

Ruth Negga’s gentle Irish accent perfectly reflects the tone of acclaimed Irish author Maggie O’Farrell’s story. Sylvie awakens one night to see a resplendent creature with snowy wings in her bedroom. It is her snow angel, who watches over her, having been sent to save her from danger. With distinct voices, Negga conveys the humor and wonder of their meeting. After this episode, Sylvie contrives ways to see the angel again but is unsuccessful until the following winter, when she makes a special request. Angelic-sounding choral music and orchestral swells enhance this timeless audiobook, which captures the magic and delight of snow. Pair this with the illustrated book and a cup of hot chocolate on a snowy day. S.C. 2023 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2022]
