In this debut memoir Terrell Dougan writes with humor, humanity, and complete honesty. Funny, wonderful, horrible, happy, sad, touching, wise, breathtakingly honest, and compellingly readable are few words that aptly describe That Went Well. It’s a journey of over 60 years of two sisters – one who is developmentally handicapped and one, a who is full of spirit. Dougan shows us how much attitudes have changed and how she helped change some of those attitudes.
With heartache and humor, tenderness and honesty, Dougan inspires us to remember the kindness, joy, and grace that forever remain life's possibility.
I’ve come to love reading books, both fiction and non-fiction, written by newspaper people like Dougan. They always say what they need to say succinctly. I can name a few authors who could take lessons, as I’m sure most readers can.
