Fire in the Ice: Book Review
"An excellent novel that will wring tears of frustration and
pain and then tears of joy from the reader.'Fire in the Ice' is a
perfect title for this book.
The passion, confusion and anger that the main character
(Deedra) felt, along with her pain over the loss of her
parents and the death of her young husband caused her to
cover her heart, lock it away and live only through a deep
survival mode. (Thus the "Ice".) Encountering Josh, she
became filled with fear at what could be her first
experiences with real love and true passion and she nearly
loathed him for disrupting her carefully constructed world.
However, Deedra was not along in her fear of feeling - Josh
too lived through a horrendous relationship that left him
wary of commitment. Her constant rebuttal was hard on
Josh, who was used to getting what he wanted, but his
persistence and love released her from her own prison and
helped Deedra realize that she had never really lived at all -
but only existed. None of Deedra's journey through her Self
was possible without the loyal support of her dear friend,
This romance novel had some very steamy parts (the "Fire")
that, though not over-used, were certainly so well written that
this shy reviewer was blushing furiously while reading them
- much to the amusement of my husband!
Katlyn Stewart has done an excellent job pulling the reader
into the lives of her characters and feeling their pain and
elation. I would not hesitate to pick up another title authored
