'Thank God we have found her.' Sara Payne's haunting words as she announced on television that the body of her daughter, missing for 17 days had been found, touched every individual. Ever since the tragic events of 1st July 2000 when their daughter Sarah was snatched by known paedophile Roy Whiting, Sara and Mike Payne have lived their lives in the public spotlight. In Sara Payne: A Mother's Story Sara will tell her personal story, from her heart and from her unique perspective for the first time. She describes how Mike and she coped with the loss of their daughter and the stress placed upon them by the media campaign for Sarah's Law, and the rebuilding of a family in the aftermath of such a trauma. Each reminded the other of the child they had lost. Guilt, anger and grief pushed the childhood sweethearts down into a spiral of alcohol abuse and violence. Although the future is still uncertain about whether the family can live together, this book is ultimately a story of hope.Although she will talk about Sarah's murder and that horrific time three years ago, this is also a book about the aftermath of those events and will bring the story up to date with the arrival of her new baby daughter later this year.
