A Song For Issy Bradley

Author:

Carys Bray

Synopsis:

This is the story of Ian - husband, father, maths teacher and Mormon bishop - and his unshakeable belief that everything will turn out all right if he can only endure to the end, like the pioneers did. This is the story of his wife Claire's lonely wait for a sign from God and her desperate need for life to pause while she comes to terms with things. This is the story of the agony and hope of Zippy Bradley's first love, and of Alma Bradley's cynicism and reluctant bravery. And it is the story of seven-year-old Jacob. His faith is bigger than a mustard seed, probably bigger than a toffee bonbon, and he's planning to use it to mend his broken family with a miracle...
