"Reading this book made me feel I was living in Diana’s past and feeling all her happiness, pain and sorrows. Once I started reading it I couldn’t put it down! Loved it! "
"So proud you found your voice, and are proactive in the discussion of a mute subject in many lives. Understanding the many ages and stages of our journey is complex. In our years held private, we often avoid discussing it, to elude judgment and gossip."

" A homerun for first time author Diana Lynn ! She tells her story of personal triumph in a manner which conveys empathy for the tragedy of human frailty which surrounded her upbringing. The author never seeks your sympathy but will have you cheering her achievements and the positive attitude and indomitable will that form the essence of her life’s journey. If you liked The Glass Castle, you’ll love The Road Back to Hell !"
" I have read this book over and over. I simply can't get enough of Diana's story. I love to read books or see movies that are based on real life. This is the first time I actually KNOW the person whose life-story is being told . I am touched to my very core by this book, this story, this woman. I have such tremendous admiration and respect for all she has been through and for the beautiful, loving friend she has become to me."

"I am in awe of the author's voice ―its authenticity and its ability to emotionally involve the reader. Diana does have a gift and I am overjoyed she is sharing it with the world!"
"A book of inspiration for all women and young girls who feel trapped. A must read for women who are settled to never take for granted what you have. And a reminder not to judge until you have walked in the proverbial shoes. Everyone has a past and you can't judge a book by its cover. You won't stop reading until the last page is turned! A must read!"

"After reading "The Road Back to Hell', I couldn't get the story out of my mind, which is always the sign of a good book that has impressed me. Diana wrote about her experiences with honesty and directness. She didn't evade the sad and upsetting details of her life. She is to be commended for her courage and truthfulness. Her family came alive on the page as she described her childhood, her sisters, and the lives they lived. Diana is an example of resiliency, someone who was able to survive the sadness and uncertainty of her childhood and emerge as a strong parent, grandparent, leader and friend. A standing ovation to my friend, Diana, on a job well-done!"
