and A Summer to die by Lois Lowry.
Yes, I had forgotten all about this one ((having read it whilst at American International school aged about 10). I hadn't known it was published in the UK. Re-reading it an adult, it still struck me as rather beautifully written, although very much 1970s it seemed dated in a nice way.
I also don't think anyone has written about Frieda's grandmother's death in - can't remember, Eustacia? When it gets to that bit about her being reunited with her little Natalie...
Also, Anne Shirley's first daughter dying in Anne's House of Dreams. My husband looked at me in bemusement as I sat in bed beside him, snivelling gently to myself.
