Contents: The Bradleys see the world as a place where miracles are possible, and where nothing is more important than family. This is their story. It is the story of Ian Bradley --
husband, father, math teacher, and Mormon bishop --
and his unshakeable belief that everything will turn out all right if he can only endure to the end, like the pioneers did. It is the story of his wife, Claire, her lonely wait for a sign from God, and her desperate need for life to pause while she comes to terms with tragedy. And it is the story of their children: sixteen-year-old Zippy Bradley, experiencing the throes of first love; cynical, fourteen-year-old Al, who would rather play soccer than read the Book of Mormon; and seven-year-old Jacob, whose faith is bigger than a mustard seed --
probably bigger than a toffee candy, he thinks --
and he's planning to use it to mend his broken family with a miracle.
Responsibility: Carys Bray.
