9780007250790: When I Think of Jenny: A Mother's Story

On 7 July 2005, Julie Nicholson's life was changed forever. Her daughter, Jenny, was killed on her way to work in the London bombings, shaking Julie's beliefs. With heartbreaking honesty and integrity, Julie tells her story of love, tragedy and heartache for the first time. 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.

About the Author:

Julie Nicholson was the mother of Jenny, a gifted musician, who died in the 7/7 London bombings of 2005. She was also priest of two churches in Bristol, St Aidan's and St George's. Eight months after her daughter died Julie resigned from her position, unable to reconcile her grief and anger with her faith. Julie continues to work with the church in a youth arts project. She lives with her husband Gregg in Bristol.

Review:

"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
