Must Read "Pieces of Me Rescuing My Kidnapped Daughters" By Lizbeth Meredith

Synopsis:
In 1994, Lizbeth Meredith said good-bye to her four- and six year-old daughters for a visit with their non-custodial father—only to learn days later that they had been kidnapped and taken to their father’s home country of Greece.

Twenty-nine and just on the verge of making her dreams of financial independence for her and her daughters come true, Lizbeth now faced a $100,000 problem on a $10 an hour budget. For the next two years—fueled by memories of her own childhood kidnapping—Lizbeth traded in her small life for a life more public, traveling to the White House and Greece, and becoming a local media sensation in order to garner interest in her efforts. The generous community of Anchorage becomes Lizbeth’s makeshift family—one that is replicated by a growing number of Greeks and expats overseas who help Lizbeth navigate the turbulent path leading back to her daughters.

Review:
Engaging, Eye Opening, Horrific True Story
This is a harrowing story about every mother’s worst nightmare. Lizbeth Meredith’s ex husband kidnaps her two daughters and takes them from Alaska to Greece. Lizbeth must find the strength and courage to go after them and fight to get them back. She must put her fears and low self worth behind her and take on the fight of her life. Getting her daughters back is all she can think of and all she can do
In this true story of one woman’s heart wrenching ordeal, we find that one can do more than expected when forced to save the lives of loved ones.

This story drew me in right from the very beginning. The things this woman must endure are more than any women could take. There is a lot of tension as she overcomes many obstacles and faces much resistance. It’s more than most people could endure. But with her children as her focus, she forges ahead.
It is an action packed book while Lizbeth faces danger and obstacles. With courage and perseverance she pushes ahead and fights the perspective governments to get her daughter's back. It seems that no matter what she does, there is resistance. But her hard work and continued struggle and persistence pays off as her children are finally returned to her.

The retelling of her story has to have been hard in itself.
But this story is excellently written as the author produces a clear picture of what her life was like and how she fought through thick and thin to live and to get her children back.
This was a tearjerker for me and I couldn’t put it down. I read it quickly, turning the pages in anticipation. The book is written with a clear voice and intent. This is a wonderful read. It is excellent in composition and written with a high standard of literacy.

If you love true stories and one that is full of action, emotion and anticipation with a heart wrenching plot filled with hope, then “Pieces of Me: Rescuing My Kidnapped Daughters”
Is the book for you and you will not be disappointed. This is one astounding terrific book, that is far above most.
