Praise

Los Angeles Times Book Review
"[Wharton's] beloved daughter lived in the banal, confusing and random place we call the world. And so to recapture her, he's recreated the place she sanctified. It's as if a prospector who had spent his career panning for gold, had stopped one day, looked upat the sky and realized that this too was a miracle, as was the cold water he stood in, ankle deep, the mud he washed away." - Benjamin Cheever 06/18/1995

Chicago Tribune Books
"With a fine eye, [Wharton] explores the anger in his grief, especially at the realization that no parent can keep a child safe forever. And when he describes viewing the remains of his loved ones..., he does so with a tenderness that vastly increases the horror....His testimony, this book istelf, is too passionate, brave and moving not to count as a victory, however hard-won." - Julia Glass 06/18/1995
