Honest and Inspirational.
About the book: You Cannot Find Peace Until You Find All The Pieces tells the story of how God through Jesus Christ transformed my life and gave me the strength to overcome a less than desirable childhood, the regrets of becoming a teen mother, anger, immaturity, poor decision making and a really bad attitude.
Review by Susan Keefe:
My first impression when starting this book was one of humility. I take the fact that I know both my parents for granted. The search by this author to know her father has affected her whole life, and lasted 18 years.
The start of her journey was a turbulent one, which she tells frankly, her childhood bad attitude and anger, her pregnancy at 15, her relationships, her struggle for self-improvement, and much more…
All these events, however, were eventually to lead her to the point at which she discovered God. Her honest story continues, as she tells of her salvation through embracing his teachings and love, and how this faith gave her the strength to find out about her father.
Knowing nothing about him, but desperate to learn, she started by discovering her ancestral roots, which went back to slaves who were brought over from the West Indies to work on the plantations of Colonial Virginia. Finding more recent information about him, however, was to prove much harder.
Throughout, there is no attempt by the author, to hide the enormous void, she felt, in her life, by the lack of knowledge about her father. This book is a tribute to her determination and tenacity against amazing odds, to find him, and it is an inspirational read.
