A Song for Issy Bradley Carys Bray August 12, 2014

I really enjoyed this book, it was sad and kind of haunting in a good way like books can be, but I found it very honest, I’ve never been in this situation myself, but it way the characters handled it seemed very real to me.  Issy Bradly dies unexpectedly and as you can imagine her family is lost.  They can’t quite figure out how to go one without their youngest member.  Her father refuses to do anything but appear as if everything is under control, her oldest sister misses her terribly, her mother tries to carry on like her father, but is soon overcome with grief and gives into it.  Her brother Jacob decides that he is going to try to bring her back.  Through their varied reactions and the wide variety of ways they try to pick up the pieces and move on the novel paints a touching portrait of a family trying to fill a void in their lives as we all do when we loose someone we love.  A free copy of the book was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
