In 1977, Margaret Wilcox faced every mother's worst nightmare - the abduction of her child. The kidnapper was not a stranger but the child's father, Hadi. When Margaret first met Hadi at a party on Valentine's Day, 1969, in Libya, she was entranced. Handsome and sophisticated, he was the classic romantic stranger; he swept her off her feet, married her and they embarked on an exotic life in Spain, where the fairytale continued. But with the birth of their child, Tanya, Hadi turned from an urbane charmer into a controlling tyrant. When Margaret fled to London, Hadi followed, snatched their now three-year-old daughter and disappeared, telling the child her mother was dead. Gone tells the dramatic story of Margaret's long search to be reunited with Tanya. At every turn she is thwarted by uncaring bureaucracies and clumsy legal systems that insist when it comes to child custody, possession is nine-tenths of the law. Inspiring, unforgettable and profoundly moving, this is the story of hope against reason, and the determination of a mother whose only dream is to once again hold her child in her arms.
