Midwest Book Review writes:
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.
