From Library Journal:

In 1981, Glaser had it all: a happy marriage to actor/director Paul Michael Glaser of TV's Starsky and Hutch and a beautiful baby daughter. But four years later, little Ariel developed AIDS, the tragic result of a blood transfusion her mother received while giving birth to her. In another bitter blow, both Glaser and her son Jake tested HIV-positive. Assisted by coauthor Palmer ( Shrapnel in the Heart , LJ 12/87), Glaser movingly re counts Ariel's illness and death. Angry at the government's apparent slowness in dealing with the epidemic and determined to save her still-healthy son, she describes her Washington lobbying efforts for more federal funds and her family's decision to go public to raise money for the Pediatric AIDS Foundation, which she founded. Like Paul Monette's Borrowed Time: An Aids Memoir (LJ 8/88), this is a valuable addition to the growing body of AIDS literature. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 6/15/90; Literary Guild featured alternate.
