Chasing Rainbows: The Stolen Future of Caroline Ann Stuttle
On the 10th April, the Stuttle family received the worst news possible. The headline in the newspaper read ‘English backpacker thrown to her death in Australia’.
The book is an insightful real-life story of ordinary people who found themselves in extraordinary circumstances. A turbulent journey and the devastating impact of the murder of Caroline Ann Stuttle. The story is told from her brother’s perspective, after a phone call at 4:30 a.m. in the French Alps changed his world forever.
Although starting with tragedy, it’s a positive story about how Caroline’s life and death touched the world and inspired people to live their best lives. Spanning across eighteen years, this book includes dealing with grief and building a charity on tragic foundations. Certain chapters are written day to day taken from Richard’s diaries, like launching a public appeal for information, attending her murder trial and continuing Caroline’s adventure around Australia.
This book winds its way along the long road of a family coming to terms with grief, how one event can significantly change the course of people’s lives. It offers an in-depth look into how people’s belief systems can change over time.
