A Song for Jenny (2015)
Julie Nicholson, vicar at St Aidan with St George in Bristol, lives with husband Greg and her children Lizzie and Thomas, her other daughter Twenty-four year old Jenny living in London and engaged to boyfriend James. On July 7 2005, after phoning James, Jenny leaves for work on a different subway route to her usual, due to a fault on the Piccadilly line. This costs her her life as shortly afterwards she is one of 24 victims slain by bomber Sidique Khan at Edgware Road station. Other bombs will claim more lives around the city. For the family there is an agonizing wait for news before Julie joins James in London and undergoes the painful task of identifying Jenny – from her hand. Angry and distraught she sets out to stay with sister Vanda in Reading and is indebted to a kindly taxi driver who takes her there and, recognizing her grief, refuses payment. Years later she is still unable to locate him to thank him despite her efforts. She will also resign from the ministry having lost faith in God and will never forgive the bomber who took her daughter from her.
