Madeleine McCann's disappearance has always been a topic that both touched me and had my attention. Even four years ago, when it took place and I was only 15 years old, I followed the media reports and could not help but feel incredibly horrified by what might have happened to this little girl and by what her parents were going through right then.
However, the reason why I decided to buy and read this book was probably more my being intrigued by the lack of clarity and the obscurity the case Madeleine McCann developed in the years to come. I bought the book expecting an slightly incomprehensible account of a series of mysterious events which the author, Kate McCann, was probably going to try to conceal by adding a little hysteria and confusing details and furthermore push herself and her family forcefully back into the spotlight.
I'm almost ashamed to admit that now, because certainly none of these expectation turned out to be true. This book is one of the most impressive, touching and heartfelt account of emotions and situations I've ever read. I'm impressed beyond words by this relentlessly open and honest account of what I'm now absolutely convinced happened when Madeleine disappeared in 2007. Kate McCann's detailed, precise account which grasps just the right tone - neither too emotional nor too matter-of-factly ' is in my opinion too logical, conclusive and based on facts to be made up.
She is neither hysterical nor incomprehensible in what she shares about the disappearance of her daughter, nor does she add confusing or irrelevant details. Everything that woman says I can relate to, which makes the pain and the agony this family has gone through so concrete and understandable. I no longer believe that this book was written to push the McCanns back into the spotlight, because I believe when Kate writes that sometimes all she wants is her old life with its convenient anonymity. The McCann have one purpose by doing what it is that they have been doing for the past 4 years: Find their daughter.
People who are not prepared to have a little compassion without constant suspicion just because they can't explain Madeleine's disappearance in a rational way so far are not obliged to read this ' I think the constant ripping apart of whatever Kate and Gerry McCann do is unnecessary and cruel.
In my opinion, all Kate McCann wants to do is to share and immortalize the truth, not even particularly for us strangers, but for her children, especially Madeleine, who might be out there and who all the "haters" could just focus the energy they waste on badmouthing on and finally find her!
