Levi Bellfield is one of the most notorious British serial killers of the last fifty years - his name alone evokes horror and revulsion, after his string of brutal murders in the early 2000s. At 3:07pm on 21st March, 2002, Milly Dowler left her school in Surrey for the last time. Less than an hour later, she was to be abducted and murdered in the cruellest fashion, sparking a missing person investigation that would span months before her body was found.

Can’t wait for the sequel.

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.

The book deals with the terrible events from the perspective of the person probably affected the most.
To the people who say, hasn’t she got any shame, she knows what happened etc, read this book.
I don’t know that happened, Mrs McCann is suffering on a daily basis, that much is clear.
As for the book, it’s well written, points are well made and argued.
I hope there is a happy sequel one day.

Loved the book.
Writing was incredible, the characters were brought to life in every sentence.
Best explanation of why people drink I have ever heard.
The reader was stunning.
I did feel the end was a bit too rushed.
It wasn’t the great climax I had hoped for, but a truly awesome book nevertheless, which I would wholeheartedly recommend.

It's 1946 and author Juliet Ashton can't think of what to write next. Out of the blue, she receives a letter from Dawsey Adams of Guernsey - by chance, he's acquired a book that once belonged to her - and, spurred on by their mutual love of reading, they begin a correspondence.
