Editorial Reviews

Nancy Rigg
The fire that occurred in RI on February 20, 2003 is considered the fourth deadliest in U.S. history, killing 100 people. Gina Russo and Paul Lonardo examine what happened from a tactical standpoint, as Russo saw it, which is perhaps the book’s most interesting angle for the public safety community; but by personalizing the victims – both deceased and surviving.
From The Ashes honors the dead and becomes Russo’s personal story of tragedy and triumph.

    Great story BUT

    - full of grammitical & spelling errors. Someone dropped the ball in proofreading the text of this story - its shameful it was published with excessive spelling errors, incorrect word usage, and leaving whole words & punctuation out of sentences. Truthfully, these glaring & frequent mistakes distracted me from this very inspiring & courageous story. I have prayed & continue to pray for the victims - those both with us & those who have passed on - as well as their families. I wish I could just hug them all.

    Personal and Touching

    From the Ashes is a very personal and touching story written by a lovely women who endured something noone should have to overcome. The details of this horrific occurence is unbelievalbe and I can not imagine what the patrons and families went through even after reading the story. I do feel for the victims and the families. I am happy that writing the story helped Gina heal emotionally and she is so fortunate to have a loving family and supportive friends to help her and her two children through a tramatic life ordeal. The most amazing part of reading this story is that I met this special, beautiful woman while vacationing out of the country. I felt more connected to her life story while getting to know Gina during our vacation and it was a pleasure to meet her loving family as well that helped her recover. Interesting part is that I did not realize her life event until our last evening of vacation; I could not wait to read her story once home. I wish her editor was a little more thorough as yes there are some grammar mistakes yet this story was written for healing purposes so I overlooked this aspect. So happy that Gina is living a beautiful life with Steve and her two sons and she found happiness once again:)! My pleasure to meet this amazing and beautiful woman both inside and out:)!
