Canon Dr Chris Sugden’s book review of Blue Sky:
“An intriguing and complex case study of family relationships explored through a fast-moving narrative of danger, tragedy and disappointment interwoven with prayer and Christian witness. The story sets up a series of discussion questions related to Family Systems Theory which will provide fertile ground for church home groups to wrestle with the need and guidelines for forgiveness. It will make those little grey cells work overtime. “
