Honest and compelling,
This review is from: An Apple a Day: A Memoir of Love and Recovery from Anorexia (Paperback)
In 'An Apple a Day' I discovered many real and identifiable emotions and struggles:control, autonomy, identity, addiction, fear ... and yet the book has an underlying sense of hope and strength which comes from the author's honesty and determination. From reading this book (in one emotional sitting!) I have found comfort in the fact that we are not alone in our struggles, no matter how extreme they may be. I am delighted to have found this an open, insightful and intelligent account of this complex illness. Emma Woolf's story will stay with me forever.
