A Song for Jenny

A Motherís Story of Love and Loss

by Julie Nicholson


Price: £7.99
Publisher:Harper Collins
Published:20 January 2011
If this was fiction I could say how well this is written. How there are descriptive passages with a beauty all their own. True, but this is not a literary work, this is the gut reaction to an actual event. This is a Mother sharing with us the stark reality of unimaginable horror and grief.
Jenny was murdered by the terrorist bomber at Edgware Street Station in the London bombing of 7/7 2005
Almost a moment by moment account of the hope, then the despair of that time. A harrowing yet compulsive read.

As I write, the inquest is being held in London and the families are suffering yet again as they hear the details of what happened.
