Paige Meyer is 43 years old and is planning her wedding. She has a difficult relationship with her mother Elizabeth. She is still mourning the loss of her father, who she was very close with. After taking a DNA test, she learns that her beloved dad is not her biological father. Her non-communicative mother refuses to shed any light on this discovery. Paige loses all sense of herself and with the help of her close friends, she looks for answers. Her journey is not only a search for the man who is her birth father but a chance to understand her mother, who gave birth to Paige when she was seventeen and still in college.
Little Pieces of Me is told in the present and in the past when Paige’s mother (who was called Betsy) had her whole life ahead of her. And her biological father Andy, grappling with what path he should take in life. The characters in this memorable book come across very real. You’ll feel for each of them as their stories explain why they made the choices they did and as Paige tries to put the pieces of her life together. My heart was heavy after reading this book.
