A Song for Issy Bradley by debut author Carys Bray is an absolutely beautiful book that effortlessly deals with all the big subjects: faith and belief, relationships and suffering, love and loss.

The story of a Mormon family trying to work out how to carry on when their world has fallen apart, the book expertly weaves the conflict their religion brings to each member of the household - from the devout father to Jacob, the unforgettable seven-year-old son who plans to mend his broken family with a miracle.

Thoroughly heartbreaking - so will undoubtedly make you sob - but ultimately uplifting, funny, compelling and enriching, Carys Bray's Song for Issy Bradley leaves readers with an unshakable sense of poignancy - for all the right reasons.

A Song for Issy Bradley -

Found myself wanting to finish the book without enjoying it. Thought the narrative tedious and lacked the ability to draw me into the story.

excellent debut novel -

This is an excellent first novel. I couldn't put it down. Having been in a fundamentalist religion I could identify with Claire. The other characters are finely drawn and your heart will ache for them.
