Publisher's Summary

The decision to publish the book has been very difficult, and taken with heavy hearts... My reason for writing it is simple: to give an account of the truth...
Writing this memoir has entailed recording some very personal, intimate and emotional aspects of our lives. Sharing these with strangers does not come easily to me, but if I hadn't done so I would not have felt the book gave as full a picture as it is possible for me to give.
As with every action we have taken over the last four years, it ultimately boils down to whether what we are doing could help us to find Madeleine. When the answer to that question is yes, or even possibly, our family can cope with anything... nothing is more important to us than finding our little girl.
Gerry McCann says: "It is a sad fact that not a single police force anywhere is proactively looking forMadeleine (as is the case for many other missing children). I am sure this book will re-energize the search for our daughter and the public will get behind the Find Madeleine campaign once again. It is simply unacceptable that the authorities could give up on Madeleine - especially without a single review of the case having been carried out. Our daughter, and whoever took her, are out there. We need your help to find them."
All royalties donated to Madeleine's fund.

This is not about Madeleine

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If the book had been about the little girl rather than her mother.

Would you ever listen to anything by Kate McCann again?


You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I'm sorry, no it didn't. I was extremely disappointed and rather shocked by the way it was more like Kate McCann's uninteresting autobiography.

Kate's agony runs through this book, and I found myself in tears several times while listening. The focus, of course, had to be on the search for Madeleine. All the McCann's want is to find their missing daughter. The Portuguese "investigation" was appallingly sub-standard and the family have faced constant criticism, suspicion and intrusions while still desperately trying to find Madeleine. I sincerely hope that they will be reunited with their beautiful Madeleine soon.
