Product Description

Product Description

‘Mum...’ This was the last word that 15-year-old Liverpool fan Kevin Williams spoke as he lay dying, one of the 96 tragic victims of the Hillsborough disaster. Kevin’s mum, Anne, was not there to answer his call but she never let her son down. From that fateful day, April 15, 1989, she embarked on a remarkable 24-year battle to see justice done. Convinced of a cover-up by the powers that be, she left no stone unturned in her quest to uncover the truth. It was a campaign that she fought to her dying day, succumbing to cancer at the age of 62 in April, 2013. Anne’s efforts had not been in vain. Just months earlier, a historic breakthrough saw the original inquest verdicts quashed, following a public apology to the Hillsborough families by Prime Minister David Cameron. Her daughter Sara, Kevin’s sister, was with Anne every step of the way. Now, with the help of personal recollections penned by her mum in her final months, she tells the real story of Anne’s remarkable journey – her spirit in the face of the many setbacks and her defiant refusal to accept defeat. Anne’s final message before losing her fight for life was ‘I never walked alone’. This book is dedicated to everyone who has ever fought for justice in the name of the 96.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Inspirational Story 11 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I consider myself well-educated on Hillsborough, which means I knew a lot of what was written in this book before I read it. What amazes me about this most avoidable of disasters and most despicable of cover-ups is that you never know it all. The lengths to which people went to keep the truth covered up, the obstacles that were put in the way of a normal working class Mum over such a long period of time would be enough to destroy anyone - but Anne kept her faith in what she knew. The facts of Kevin's case. It's remarkable to see the bonds she built with those who helped Kevin on the day - good people trying to do difficult jobs, good people harassed into changing statements and simply not called to give evidence because they told a different story than that the authorities had put out.

When the Hillsborough Independent Panel Report came out, it was described by many legal experts as the biggest cover-up in UK history. No-one did more to expose that than Anne Williams. She deserves to have that story told, brilliantly told by those who knew her best. She deserves that story to be read. She deserves for you to read it.
