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.
50% of the profits go directly to Caroline’s Rainbow Foundation.
Dedication | For my sister, Caroline, may you live forever in our hearts and minds. All my love, Richard.
