Madeleine McCann Book Extracts: The Loving Mum And Pain Guaranteed
MADELEINE McCann The Book: Madeleine. Extract 1: the “Loving Mum”.
The Sun begins its serialisation of the official Our Maddie reader with the headline:
Madeleine: By Her Mum
The sub-editors have decided to restore the innocent child’s name to its full. Out goes the media’s Maddie. In comes Madeleine, in keeping with the book’s title.
Antonella Lazzeri and the paper’s chief feature writer Oliver Harvey tells us:
IT’S the most heartbreaking book you will ever read.
Guaranteed! You be 100% per cent upset! Or your money back?
Four years ago Madeleine McCann was abducted from a holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal.
Fact! Or not!
Now for the first time ever her mum Kate tells in her own words the utter torment Madeleine’s family have suffered since their little girl disappeared.
Fact! Or not if you count the many other times Kate McCann has spoken out.
She tells of the moment she discovered Madeleine, who disappeared days away from her fourth birthday, was missing.
What Kate and husband Gerry fear happened to their precious daughter.
We’re back to the theories and the fear.
How they were made official suspects in their daughter’s abduction and how they have devoted their lives to searching for their daughter for the past four years.
Fact! As well as being devoted to their two other children.
The book, simply called ‘Madeleine’, containing never before seen photos of the little girl, is being serialised in The Sun from this Saturday and all next week.
Fact! Sadly, these never seen before photos of the child are from BEFORE her disappearance.
The McCanns hope the book, which is being published on Madeleine’s eighth birthday, will boost a dwindling fund that helps pay for the search for Madeleine to continue.
Kate, 43, said: “Every penny we raise through its sales will be spent on our search for Madeleine. Nothing is more important to us than finding our little girl.”
‘Madeleine’ is being published on May 12th by Transworld at a price of £20.
Readers can buy Madeleine (RRP £20) for the special price of £18.00 including free UK and Ireland p&p.
