A powerful tale of one woman's desperate journey from grief to acceptance and forgiveness after an accident shatters her life.

Francesca Bodin has a near-perfect life as an accomplished music teacher and professional flutist living in the country with her husband, Ben, and their four-year-old daughter, Addie. This ends suddenly when a snowmobiling accident traps the three of them in a frozen lake. Ben escapes, leaving her and Addie behind to die.

 Francesca believes she sees their dog pull Addie from the lake and drag her into the nearby woods. Desperate to help her daughter, she struggles to emerge from the icy waters and follows them. Once she enters the forest, however, she finds herself trapped in a sinister dream-like world where night never ends, where Addie's whereabouts remain hidden from her, and where she encounters a group of women who, like Francesca, have been left to die and now seek to unleash their revenge on those who have harmed them. When they have Ben in their sights, Francesca realizes that if she is ever to escape this nightmare and save her daughter, she must first save the husband who abandoned them.

“[D]eftly focuses on redemption and forgiveness . . . an engaging tale about thorny family ties.”
Kirkus Reviews 

“This is a story that will at times chill your bones, but also warm your heart. Susan Speranza’s Ice Out is a transformative tale of one woman’s desperate journey to save the ones she loves, and in the process save herself. Part allegory, the novel explores the inner reaches of our soul, to our moral compass, in order to find the way forward toward forgiveness and self-acceptance. Speranza brilliantly threads the line between utter heartache and redemption in a thrilling novel that lingers long after its last page is turned.”
—Wm. Anthony Connolly, author of Psalms & Stones and The Smallest Universe

“In her tense, riveting thriller Ice Out, Susan Speranza taps into ancient tropes of desire, faith, and fear to weave a tale of lovers Francesca and Ben. Seemingly in possession of the perfect marriage, Francesca certainly feels occasional tension from Ben, but as the pages fly along, the signs grow more foreboding. A wicked, tragic final act at last makes Francesca face the cold, hard facts of her life. But when she finds herself suddenly with real power in her hands, will Francesca choose forgiveness, or the much more tempting revenge? Speranza’s fine storytelling in Ice Out grabs the reader and simply never lets go.”
—Tony D'Souza, author of Whiteman and The Konkans

Ice Out is an emotional rollercoaster with an intricate psychological plot. Readers who enjoy metaphysical fiction, thriller, or psychological fiction novels will be drawn into this riveting story.”
—Literary Titan

“A harrowing, mind-bending journey; fans of fast-paced fiction will thoroughly enjoy this book. Highly recommended!”
