More about the book!
‘My name is Gemma Dowler. On 21 March 2002, a serial killer named Levi Bellfield stole my sister and sent our family to hell …’
On the 21st of March 2002, Gemma Dowler was a happy, confident teenager at the heart of a loving, funny, music-mad family. That day, life as she knew it came to an abrupt end with the abduction and murder of her beloved younger sister, Milly.
In My Sister Milly, Gemma recounts the terrible day of Milly’s disappearance, the suspicions that fell on the family, the torture of encountering the murderer in court, the fatal errors made by the police, how it very nearly destroyed her family and how love and hope helped the family survive.
Everyone thinks they know the story of Milly Dowler, but only one person knows the true pain of having lost her sister, and how a family can rediscover hope to survive.
This book has been written so that one day Gemma’s own children can read the true story of their Aunty Milly recounted by a sister who will never forget her and never stop loving her.
