Hardcover Ý Messenger ePUB Ì Taken from Lowry s website I ve always felt that I was fortunate to have been born the middle child of three My older sister Helen was very much like our mother gentle family oriented eager to please Little brother Jon was the only boy and had interests that he shared with Dad together they were always working on electric trains and erector sets and later when Jon was older they always seemed to have their heads under the raised hood of a car That left me in between and exactly where I wanted most to be on my own I was a solitary child who lived in the world of books and my own vivid imaginationBecause my father was a career military officer an Army dentist I lived all over the world I was born in Hawaii moved from there to New York spent the years of World War II in my mother s hometown Carlisle Pennsylvania and from there went to Tokyo when I was eleven High school was back in New York City but by the time I went to college Brown University in Rhode Island my family was living in Washington DCI married young I had just turned nineteen just finished my sopho year in college when I married a Naval officer and continued the odyssey that military life reuires California Connecticut a daughter born there Florida a son South Carolina Finally Cambridge Massachusetts when my husband left the service and entered Harvard Law School another daughter another son and then to Maine by now with four children under the age of five in tow My children grew up in Maine So did I I returned to college at the University of Southern Maine got my degree went to graduate school and finally began to write professionally the thing I had dreamed of doing since those childhood years when I had endlessly scribbled stories and poems in notebooksAfter my marriage ended in when I was forty I settled into the life I have lived ever since Today I am back in Cambridge Massachusetts living and writing in a house dominated by a very shaggy Tibetan Terrier named Bandit For a change of scenery Martin and I spend time in Maine where we have an old it was built in farmhouse on top of a hill In Maine I garden feed birds entertain friends and readMy books have varied in content and style Yet it seems that all of them deal essentially with the same general theme the importance of human connections A Summer to Die my first book was a highly fictionalized retelling of the early death of my sister and of the effect of such a loss on a family Number the Stars set in a different culture and era tells the same story that of the role that we humans play in the lives of our fellow beingsThe Giver and Gathering Blue and the newest in the trilogy Messenger take place against the background of very different cultures and times Though all three are broader in scope than my earlier books they nonetheless speak to the same concern the vital need of people to be aware of their interdependence not only with each other but with the world and its environmentMy older son was a fighter pilot in the United States Air Force His death in the cockpit of a warplane tore away a piece of my world But it left me too with a wish to honor him by joining the many others trying to find a way to end conflict on this very fragile earthI am a grandmother now For my own grandchildren and for all those of their generation I try through writing to convey my passionate awareness that we live intertwined on this planet and that our future depends upon our caring and doing for one another.
