Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook of My Sister Milly by Gemma Dowler, read by Ruby Thomas.

This is Gemma Dowler's powerful account, as seen on The One Show and This Morning....

'My name is Gemma Dowler. On 21 March 2002, a serial killer named Levi Bellfield stole my sister and sent our family to hell....'

Everyone thinks they know the story of Milly Dowler.

Haunting headlines about the missing schoolgirl splashed across front pages. The family's worst fears realised when her body was found months later. The years of waiting for the truth, only to learn that the killer, known to the police, lived just yards from where Milly had vanished. The parents subjected to horrific psychological torture at a trial orchestrated by the murderer. And the shocking revelation of what journalists would do for a story - criminal acts that brought down a national newspaper.

But these bare facts hide the true story.

In My Sister Milly, Gemma Dowler shares the heartbreaking account of Milly's disappearance, the suspicions that fell on the family, the fatal errors made by the police, and the media's obsession that focused relentlessly on every personal, intimate and emotional aspect of the Dowlers' lives. It is the story of two stolen childhoods - Milly's and Gemma's - and about the love that kept the family together as they struggled with terrible darkness and injustice.

However, this book is a story of hope and recovery.

It's taken 15 years of pain for the family to find their voice. The family has worked hard and has received intensive therapy to recover from the trauma of Milly's murder. Their story shows that whatever suffering you endure in life, there is always hope, and there is always love.

Now, for the first time, Gemma tells their story and that of the real Milly. Above all, in this book the family want to bring back to life their incredible daughter and sister. Now, finally, the truth about Milly Dowler can never be denied.

    "Heartbreaking and Fascinating..."

    I bought the book first and read that almost without putting it down, the audiobook I've listened to while driving... Such a strong family, this book should never have been written or narrated, it's only through the loss of Milly that it has...

    Story
    "Heart breaking and powerful."

    An unbelievably true and heart wrenching account of a tragic story. Gemma Dowler has done an amazing job off getting her family's story told. It's a difficult listen at times but there are really important issues and lessons to be learnt. What a brave inspirational and amazing family the Dowlers are!

    Story
    "Gruelling, but a must read.I found this audiobook "
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I found this audiobook very gruelling. It's a book which is going to be with me for a very long time. Having gone through a tragic death in dealing with the crown count, I was interested in how the family coped with all that they went through. Well now I know… In writing this book, it must have been so terribly painful to revisit memories to write down for others to see, this takes considerable inner strength. I can only wish the family well, and hope they remain and continue in strength.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Nothing to like. This is fact. This was the murder of little Milly.


    Have you listened to any of Ruby Thomas’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    In my opinion the narrator was well suited.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Story
    "A very harrowing ride this book is."

    This book will take a toll on you. But it's amazing that a sister could write all this about her sibling. How one family could endure this is mind boggling. It shows how tough we all need to be in this scary world. Milly is up there smiling without a doubt.
