Friend left hers outside and we had frost in the middle of May. Is the plant dead or is there a way to nurse it back to health?

A Persian Violet can tolerate temperatures as low as 40 degrees F.
You can try pruning back the dead or cold damaged parts of the plant and wait and see it the roots survived.
