A desperate mother’s last-ditch plan to escape from Turkey with her son. During a routine family holiday to her husband’s homeland of Turkey, Lisa Kennedy was suddenly told their marriage was over.

During a routine family holiday to her husband’s homeland of Turkey, Lisa Kennedy was suddenly told their marriage was over. Her husband took their eight-month-old baby from her care and instructed her to go home to Australia, alone – beginning four years of hell in Istanbul as she fought the case through both Turkish and international courts all the while battling people she once called family, now hell-bent on not letting her leave with her only son. Lisa fought for Turkish permanent custody and an International Hague return order simultaneously, so that she could return to Australia legally with her child. However, the protracted processes through a foreign legal system kept them in a holding pattern with no end in sight. Finally, with time against her and all faith lost in legal channels, Lisa realised she had a mother’s only choice: she had to save her child and get back home by whatever means available. That meant calling on outside help and, to raise awareness about the frailties of international marriages and children, '60 Minutes' agreed to film the plight.

    This book tells the story of a mother’s long fight for the right to return to her country with her son. Lisa writes so well and her strength and courage come through at all times. Her ability to stay calm and remain civilised in the face of such adversity and bitterness amazed me. It also shows the failure of an amazing piece of legislation such as The Hague Convention (which should swiftly return a child to their country of origin) where the country in which it is operating has a faulty justice This book tells the story of a mother’s long fight for the right to return to her country with her son. Lisa writes so well and her strength and courage come through at all times. Her ability to stay calm and remain civilised in the face of such adversity and bitterness amazed me. It also shows the failure of an amazing piece of legislation such as The Hague Convention (which should swiftly return a child to their country of origin) where the country in which it is operating has a faulty justice system. I just hope that things have improved, but looking online at more recent cases, it sadly appears not to be the case. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading well written human interest stories, or about about recovering a child within the Turkish legal system.

    Lisa is one strong and amazing woman. I don't think I would of been able to hold myself together as good as she did. Intense and Mind-blowing. So happy that she and her son made it home safe after all that happened. Thank you, Netgalley.
