  Three Cheers for Nancy! , 11/13/2012
Reviewer: debra Jayne East
Nancy came from a divorced home.When she married her high school sweetheart she expected to have a happy life. Her husband Tom was not what she expected. He was abusive and a heavy drinker.The recession is putting a heavy toll on the relationship and to make matters worse, Tom's parents do not like Nancy. I really felt for Nancy who deals with all these issues on a way to self discovery. I connected with her when she had to deal with trying to keep the family afloat and work with her relationship when Tom who was having a negative effect on her life. Nancy became my hero and will resonate with readers everywhere.I rated this 5 stars and it is well worth the read.

  Important book , 11/27/2012
Reviewer: Anthea Carson
This book is very important. It deals with the very real situation of domestic violence. I believe that this book will help women stay out of bad relationships, and help women who are in this very painful situation to know that they are not alone. This can be very important because usually one feels incredibly alone when they are a victim of domestic violence. I related to a lot of the struggles the main character went through, they are very typical and difficult. People say it is so easy to leave. This book shows some of the dangers of leaving, as well as the dangers of staying. For example, sometimes the batterer will hold the children hostage. NO mother ever wants to see anything bad happen to their children, so they stay out of fear. Sometimes the way a batterer manipulates is to take the children from the mother in a rage, leaving her to suffer with terrible anxiety and fear. Sometimes the batterer also abuses her with his family, by showing more loyalty to them than to her, and by allowing them to verbally abuse her and gossip about her. I highly recommend this book

  DJ's Review , 01/27/2013
Reviewer: DJ Swykert
Fire and Ice is an authentic look at two serious problems, spousal abuse and alcoholism. The books straight forward narrative style makes Nancy and Tom’s story poignant and her anguish convincing. It spares the reader the graphic details of the violence undermining the relationship without sacrificing it as the root cause of the problem. Dianna chose to focus on the day to day trauma people living with alcoholism and abuse experience and her book is a better read for it. Fire and Ice concludes leaving the reader with hope, understanding there are solutions to a destructive relationship if you have the courage and will to pursue them.

  A realistic look at an abusive relationship , 07/06/2013
Reviewer: Brenda Perlin
This harrowing story caught my attention from the start. My heart ached for this woman and her daughter. Abuse is abuse and it doesn't matter if there is a marriage certificate that comes along with it. There is nothing worse than staying in a bad relationship. Trying to depend on your own happiness through someone else can be a never ending battle. There comes a time when you have to take responsibility and find it on your own. This emotional story felt realistic and the writing was clear and right to the point. I was hoping for a happy ending that happens in most fairy tales but this was a story about life. Who knows what will happen? Sometimes the puzzle pieces do not fit into place.

Fire and Ice is very informative. I think a lot of people could find it very helpful, especially as it concerns understanding domestic and familial abuse and their impact on people.
