And a Time to Die: The Pain and Love
of a Journey Home With AIDS
Frances Bontrager Greaser
Frances Greaser has exposed her soul in this moving account of
confronting first the shock of learning her son has AIDS and is a homosexual, then the
grief of life fading into death. Greaser speaks of very intimate and tender moments,
hurts and pleasures, in this intimate love story about her stepson David. Persons who
have lost a child to AIDS will identify with this story and want others to read it.
Those who have not faced such pain need to become aware -- and ready.
A Time To Die
tells of anguish. Yet the images which finally triumph are those of hope and faith,
life and resurrection. With the author's preface and an appendix offering advice and
guidance for caregivers and visitors of persons with AIDS, this is necessary reading
for anyone who has been affected by AIDS.
