WINNER OF THE AUTHORS' CLUB BEST FIRST NOVEL AWARD 2015

SHORTLISTED FOR THE COSTA FIRST NOVEL AWARD 2015 AND
THE DESMOND ELLIOTT PRIZE 2015

Meet the Bradleys.

In lots of ways, they're a normal family:
Zippy is sixteen and in love for the first time; Al is thirteen and dreams of playing for Liverpool.

And in some ways, they're a bit different:
Seven-year-old Jacob believes in miracles. So does his dad.

But these days their mum doesn't believe in anything, not even getting out of bed.

How does life go on, now that Issy is gone?

MEDIA REVIEWS
I cannot remember a time when a novel has seduced me so completely . . . Bray writes with such clarity, intelligence and authenticity that it feels as if a trusted old friend is telling you the story, that the characters are people you know. * The Times *
Wonderful ... heartbreaking, compassionate and funny. -- Shelley Harris * Independent on Sunday *
Bray explores the healing power of religion with rare assurance in one of the year's most impressive debuts. * Mail on Sunday *
Bray brings humour, empathy and knowledge to what is fundamentally a novel about grief and faith ... Read this if you like: Jojo Moyes' Me Before You. * Harper's Bazaar *
I loved this tender, moving, funny and deeply truthful story about a family and a faith tested to breaking-point. -- Helen Dunmore, author of THE LIE

“A compelling debut that sings...”

There is a death at the heart of this novel, but it is far removed from depressive mawkishness. Yes, emotionally gruelling in places, but it dances around that catastrophic event with grace, honesty and even a touch... More
