Editorial Reviews

Review

2017 Silver Medalist, IPPY in Memoir/Personal Struggles


2017 International Book Awards, Finalist Autbiography/Memoir


2016 Best Book Awards, Finalist Women's Issues




"Pieces of Me is an important, honest, and heart-rending story of a brave young mother's struggle to save her precious daughters, no matter the toll it takes on her, as she through it all carries the double burden of reliving her own childhood trauma."

—Lene Fogelberg, author of The Wall Street Journal bestseller Beautiful Affliction


"Lizbeth Meredith writes hauntingly about an all too common experience - domestic violence - and its ultimate aftermath: kidnapping. In the face of a mother's nightmare she summons all her resources to recover her daughters. Pieces of Me is powerful testimony to one woman's courage and resilience in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds, and to the unbreakable bonds between a mother and her daughters."

—Eleanor Vincent, author of Swimming with Maya: A Mother's Story


"Pieces of Me is the inspiring tale of how a quietly powerful woman overcame bullying, abduction, arrest and being failed by the authorities in two continents to free her daughters."

—Dr. Jane Wilson-Howarth, author of A Glimpse of Eternal Snows


"In mid-March 1994, Meredith writes, her former spouse kidnapped their two young daughters from Alaska and took them to his native country of Greece. Over the next two years, she tried to locate the girls and bring them back to her Alaska home, all while navigating a bureaucratic and legal labyrinth in a foreign culture. This book is a remarkably eloquent and harrowing account of a journey that would tax any parent. The book's conclusion could hardly be a more resounding tribute to the human spirit. A unique perspective on a harrowing Greek odyssey."

—Kirkus Reviews


"One of the many strengths of her trenchant pilgrimage to rescue her children is that it does not devolve into a cloying composite of artificially constructed set pieces, designed to squeeze our tear ducts dry. Meredith gracefully pulls us in to her journey so that we?re traveling into Greece with her, by her side, silent participants, holding on as best we can, much like she is doing. Her recounting of this painful episode remains a taut thriller, a twisting rollercoaster ride up and down the gamut of emotions."

—Anchorage Press
