Overview

Ronald Reagan's political career and his status as a cultural icon have been observed from every angle, but his role as a father to his daughter has been seen only in the harsh light of Patti's well-publicized tensions with Nancy Reagan.

Overview

Ronald Reagan's political career and his status as a cultural icon have been observed from every angle, but his role as a father to his daughter has been seen only in the harsh light of Patti's well-publicized tensions with Nancy Reagan. But now Patti Davis has reconciled with her mother and the catalyst was Angels Don't Die. In fact, her parents were so touched by the book they have contributed introductory comments. Angels Don't Die is a moving tribute to Ronald Reagan's spiritual strength and offers an intimate portrait that will appeal to people everywhere who admire the Reagans as well as to anyone contending with the challenges of parent-child relationships. Putting aside past hurts and misunderstandings, Patti Davis writes lyrically of the lessons she learned from watching her father cope with the various crises in his life. She writes of his forgiveness of John Hinckley, Reagan's would-be assassin, and of his near-death experience following surgery. She reveals Ronald Reagan to be a simple, quietly heroic man whose faith in God has never wavered.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Davis offers a moving tribute to former President Reagan, her father.
Denise Donavin
Ronald Reagan reassured his daughter when she was a child of eight or nine and concerned that "it was true that every time a star falls it means an angel has died." "Angels don't die," he responded, with the simplicity and sincerity that marked his religious beliefs. In this slim volume, Davis talks about the gift of faith Reagan has shared with her. Childhood stories about angels, prayer, and fireflies segue into her own rebellious and angry feelings in early adulthood and lead finally into a peaceful conviction--" a deep, resilient faith that God's love never wavers." Though many may find startling the contrast between Davis' tone here and in her earlier literary efforts, some quite critical of Dad, this appreciative testimony offers touching insights into the faith and private life of the former president, now suffering from Alzheimer's disease.
