Praise

New York Times Book Review
"...[A] father's painful, cathartic reminiscence. The former South Dakota Senator's distinguished career and accomplishments seem eclipsed by his daughter's horrifying death....[I]t is not a self-help book but rather a family drama of love and loss." - Meryl Gordon 06/02/1996

Newsweek
"McGovern's abiding love for his daughter, and his anguish at the thought of failing her, scorch these pages." - Laura Shapiro 05/20/1996

Philadelphia Inquirer
"[McGovern] is trying to make an inexplicable loss understandable. He wants to do something about his daughter's death. This can often be the motivation for good works." - Stuart Green 06/30/1996

Washington Post Book World
"Heartbreaking. 'Terry' reads like William Styron's 'Lie Down in Darkness'. It is probably the quintessential American experience of the second half of this century." - Carolyn See
