An excellently written book, impossible to put down. A gripping drama, from start to finish. Melissa is one in a million, a truly remarkable woman and the book is a testament to this.

Excellent, amazing journey of a courageous mother! May they all remain safely in Canada. It is a mother's job to protect her children and that is no easy job!
  • Agalen
I could not put this book down until I knew the outcome! The heartache this woman must have felt brings tears to my eyes.
Melissa never thought her Lebanese-Australian husband whom she had been seperated with for ten months would kidnap their daughters and flee to Lebanon. He had not been to Lebanon since he was two years old having grown up in Australia. He had even told her once that he would never marry a Lebanese woman. Even when people warned her of possible parental abduction she paid it no mind thinking her husband would never have the desire to go to Lebanon.
Melissa allowed her husband to take their daughters on a three week vacation from Canada to visit their fathers family in Australia. It came as a complete shock when Melissa was contacted a few days before the girls were due home and told that her children would not be coming back. Even more shocking was the fact that their father took them to a country in the middle of a war.
This is an amazing story of courage and a great testament to the love a mother has for her children.

In the midst of being embattled with Joes cruel and irrational abuse, She goes to see a psychologist or psychiatrist, who tells her that the cultural walls between her and Joe are insurmountable...which sounds like an understatement if anything.

She dismisses this, feeling that the Psychologist is 'culturally biased"...which I imagine is fluff-speak for she thinks he's a racist.
In this paragraph I revisited my initial doubts about Melissa and her situation b4 I even commenced reading the book proper.
I started out wondering WTF was she even thinking getting into this with this guy in the beginning, and to what extent she had herself to blame for her judgement and choice, which her entire family seemed to likewise find unfathomable.
"Get away from this guy, Melissa, the cultural divide is insurmountable."
Melissa , thought-bubble "oh, youre a racist"
unreal, woman.

Melissa Hawach is clearly a woman of conviction and deep, unbendable love toward her children. In 'Flight of the Dragonfly', the reader enters into the insane world that is parental international child abduction through the journey that Ms. Hawach endured during the time that she was required, against unsurmountable odds, to find her parentally kidnapped children in the Middle East.

There are two things that I would like to specifically point out in this carefully and thoughtfully written real-life thriller. The first is that, as Ms. Hawach points out, the illegal abduction and disappearnce of a child by a parent is no different that a non-parental abduction. If anything, the hardships a child can face may be more difficult. And the second thing important item that I would like to point out is that in and through Ms. Hawach's actions, she has spread some rays on light for other Chasing Parents left behind in the wake of the nightmare that is international parental child abduction.

Presenting the complex issues of The Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction in an non-complicated and easily accessible way, the reader is able to understand just how contradictory and complicated international law is with respect to a child's kidnapping accross international borders, and, what can be done to prevent this growing epidemic from spreading.

As a successful Chasing Parent myself, I connected with 'Flight of the Dragonfly' in a very deep and compelling way. This is a wonderfully written story that I wish was never written. A must read for anyone involved with the recovery of children abducted, as well as those who really enjoy a suspenseful real-life thriller.
