Notes:
Sometimes however much you love someone, you can't understand them. Ian used to think that his life had been disappointingly easy, compared to the pioneers. He had a happy marriage, four children, a satisfactory job and, for just over a year, he has served the church in his role as Bishop of the local congregation, an enormous responsibility. And then Issy died. Now his wife, Claire, won't get out of their dead daughter's bottom bunk and she won't speak.

I was so frustrated with this book and struggled understand all the rave reviews. I know I should respect other people's religion but Ian's unshakeable faith to the point where he puts religious meetings before his own family, the mental bullying to make zippy accompany her mum to the mortuary when she clearly didn't want to, of Al to go and clean the church, he made me so cross and irritated. This wasn't for me, with respect and apologies to everyone who loved it only a two star.
