I picked this book up at the library a while back because of the cover. I had no clue what it was about. I thought that the title was interesting and I began to read it. I found this book to be both enjoyable and depresing. This novel is about a family of four. The father is a writer and professor. He has a wife named Lydia and two daughters, Molly and Meg. Both, he and his wife decide to rent a house in the country, so that Dr.Chalmers (the father), can complete the book that he is in the process of writing. They rent a house from a man named Will. He is a free spirited 70 year old man. Both he and Meg share a passion for photography. Meg becomes friends with Will and meets his new renters across the field. Ben and Maria are a couple with a child on the way. Of course Molly loves this, because her dream in life is to get married and to have a child. Molly can not wait for the child to be born and be able to see it, but Molly become very sick and is hospitalized. Will Molly be out in time for the birth of Ben and Maria's child? What will Molly's fate be?

A Summer to Die

A Summer to Die, by Lois Lowry, was not an outstanding book, but also not a bad one. The novel was OK and had a deep meaning of fraternical relationships and when one dies, but the author did not bring it out with strength. It was an OK and also forgettable story.
