You Believers is a powerful, cathartic story of casual evil and of how the worst things can be faced so that we might not only survive, but grow. A young woman goes missing, and her mother uproots her life to find her daughter. But it is not just the heartbreak or the deep mystery of the hunt for lost loved ones that Bradley so convincingly explores. Rather, with the help of an amazingly dedicated searcher, family and friends somehow learn to move past unspeakable horror and celebrate the tenacity of the human spirit. Offering a vision that is at once ruthless and utterly compassionate, Bradley renders the search for logic, meaning, redemption and even hope in the domino force that is human nature. Part Southern gothic, part crime, part haunting suspense story, You Believers takes us on an infinitely harrowing journey that rewards the reader with insight into how we might endure horrible events with faith, strength, and grace even while it reveals the ripple effects of random violence.

This engrossing autobiography is of a remarkable woman born into the assimilated Jewish upper-class in pre-World War 2 Austria. After a hair-raising escape from the Nazis she came penniless to the United States. Beginning as a dress finisher, her varied career took her to Hollywood, the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials, the American Consulates in Budapest, Hungary and Alexandria, and the United Nations in Argentina. She eventually settled in the Washington DC suburbs where she worked for 20 years for the Montgomery County school system. When she retired she was saluted as an outstanding advocate for children with disabilities. This candidly told story describes the risk and daring of one woman's triumph over adversity.
