Pieces Of Me is the story of a woman who had to go rescue her kidnapped daughters from her estranged ex-husband. Lizbeth Meredith grew up in a bad home and once grown, she thought she was marrying the right man but soon discovered that was far from what she ever wished for. In 1994, she said good-bye to her four and six year old daughters when they left for a weekend with their father only to have them be kidnapped by her ex and taken to Greece. It takes nearly two years for Lizbeth to get her daughters back to the states with lessons learned and discovering what it truly means to be a family once again.
This book is amazing in the sense of what Lizbeth had to go through during her childhood and the fight to get her girls back. I read this book in two days and when I wasn't reading it, it had me thinking about the theme of this book and why are the laws so loose when a parent takes their own child. In my mind, if you break a custody agreement and take the child or children outside the country, you should be made into a outlaw and be brought to justice instead of what Lizbeth had to go through. It was interesting to see in the end, how all three of them coped when everything was over with and how the girls adjusted to being back home.
Thank You to Lizbeth Meredith for sharing your story!!
