Review : A Song for Issy Bradley by Carys Bray

Categories 3 Literature

Drawing from her detailed personal experience, Carys Bray devastatingly dissects the Mormon religion, showing the irrelevance of its beliefs, and the distortion its power structures wreak on its members’ lives. Its attempts to address death, sex, truth, marriage, education and contemporary culture are all abject failures. Her study of grief is deeply moving, and in the end, it is facing this reality together which unites the Bradley family, rather than the Mormon church. It’s sensitively written with recognisable and convincing deep insight into common human hopes, hurts, and dilemmas.
