Summary (From the publisher):

Anna, Daniel, and Lucas seem to be living a dream. While their parents take care of a castle, they have the run of the grounds and the beautiful surrounding countryside. Their only concern is how best to catch the mysterious pike that lurks in the deep water of the moat. But when Daniel and Lucasís mother first begins to seem tired all the time, and then loses her hair, Anna wonders what is going on. It is cancer, she is told, but Daniel and Lucas must not know. As the summer days grow shorter and the colors of the fields and flowers change, the boys eventually learn of their motherís illness. Daniel becomes convinced that catching the pike will bring luck -- that it might even cure his mother. But as her condition worsens, these three true friends can only wish that they could stop the destructive march of time
