Synopsis

A Song for Jenny : A Mother's Story of Love and Loss by Julie Nicholson

Jenny Nicolson was travelling to work when a bomb exploded at Edgware Road Tube station. Her mother, Reverend Julie Nicholson, struggled to comprehend the tragedy, her sorrow and longing for her daughter turning to rage and anger. Finding herself unable to articulate the three parts of the Eucharist: peace, reconciliation and forgiveness, because she 'felt so far from those herself', Julie made the difficult decision to resign her role as priest-in-charge of St Aidan with St George Church, Bristol, unable to reconcile her feelings with her position. She continued working with the church, in a youth arts project.

Reviews

A Song for Jenny is a raw and riveting account of a mother's anguish at her daughter's death - The Times ...an extraordinarily moving memoir... - The Daily Mail ...an unflinching book...Nicholson takes us into every mother's worst nightmare - the fruitless vigil, the DNA test... - The Sunday Times A Song for Jenny...examines intimately the terrain of that strange hostile land [of grief]: every exhausting hill and dangerous pothole, and conversely, every breathtaking viewpoint - Scotland on Sunday
