The Story Behind It’s Not Over by Willow Rose

04 Aug 2020

By Willow Rose

The idea for this book came to me with the recent focus on the Madeleine McCann case again.

To those of you who might not know, it was the story of a three-year-old girl who went missing from a hotel room in Portugal in 2007 while her parents were having dinner in a restaurant nearby, and she slept in the hotel room. She was never found, and now there seem to be new theories about who took her, and German police believe they have found the killer.

That case has been haunting to me for many years, and I remember especially watching the parents during press conference after press conference, interview after interview, as the McCanns were under intense scrutiny and allegations of involvement in their daughter’s death, especially by the tabloid media. People kept looking at the mother and said that she didn’t cry enough, that she didn’t show enough emotion.

I recently thought to myself, what if it happened again? What if they had another child, and ten years later, that one disappeared too? It would be pretty hard at this point not to look very closely at the parents. It would be tough for the media and public opinion not to conclude that something had to be very off with those parents.
Something like this doesn’t happen twice, and to the same people, does it?
