Laura Lee Smith

Advance Praise for ICE HOUSE:

"Laura Lee Smith's novel THE ICE HOUSE is a majestic reconciliation story that follows a father and son's relationship from Florida to Scotland...A spirited cast makes up the foundation of Smith's delicately spun story of family, loyalty, and the difficult choices people makes when forgiving someone." - Publishers Weekly

"THE ICE HOUSE is a tour de force that sweeps readers into a symphony of powerfully drawn characters, all of whom have been wounded in ways that both cripple and embolden them. The novel is an intercontinental family saga and an exploration of blue-collar life, but at its core it's a very good novel that asks us to consider the lengths we'll go to in order to save the things that matter most: a company, a loved one, ourselves." - Wiley Cash, author of A Land More Kind Than Home and The Last Ballad

"THE ICE HOUSE offers all the pleasures of the novel - robust characters we worry about and root for, a story that deepends and intrigues, language that charms and surprises, and even some rare and welcome humor. THE ICE HOUSE is a marvel of a novel." - Beth Ann Fennelly, author of The Titled World and Heating and Cooling, and Poet Laureate of Mississippi
