Publisher's Summary

A loving mother. A perfect family. A shock wave that could shatter everything.

Freya Braithwaite knows she is lucky. Nineteen years of marriage to a man who still warms her soul and two beautiful teenage daughters to show for it: confident Charlotte and thoughtful Lexi. Her home is filled with love and laughter.

But when Lexi's struggles with weight take control of her life, everything Freya once took for granted falls apart, leaving the whole family with a sense of helplessness that can only be confronted with understanding, unity and, above all, love.

In this compelling and heart-wrenching new work by bestselling author Amanda Prowse, one ordinary family tackles unexpected difficulties and discovers that love can find its way through life's darkest moments.

    Story
    "Nothing happened!"

    This is just a book detailing how a girl got anorexia. Tears, worry, more tears, more worry etc etc. I just couldnt see the point of it. Characters were stereotypes and repetitive; no surprises. Analogies were used again and again (broken glass...urgh!). I kept listening as I was sure SOMETHING had to be around the next corner. But there never was. Infuriating.

    "Amazing read"
    Any additional comments?

    This book touches on the emotional struggle that families go through when a member is suffering from an eating disorder. It was very sensitively written and I will most certainly be recommending it to friends.

    "Not an easy listen but a good one"

    Tough subject matter but sounded horribly truthful. Read well by the author though I think another narrator might have had the edge. Very well written book.

    "Brilliant"

    This was very difficult to listen to but it was gripping. I learnt so much and will now have a completely different understanding of the illness anorexia.

    "A moving story"

    A very moving story of a families struggle to deal with and overcome the very real threat of anorexia. The story tells the ups and downs the family face and how the illness very nearly tears them apart.

    The story had me on the edge of my seat with tears in my eyes imagining how the family must be feeling. This was my first Amanda Prowse book and I will without doubt be reading more.

    "AP fan "

    AP has a way of drawing me in with the topics of the day I didn't think that I'd really be interested in a story about an eating disorder but once again she puts it down as if I know the struggle this family is going through that any family can be going through with any type of problem or conflict so she has a great gift of making this seem real and clearly the topics she chooses and How Deeply she gets into the family Dynamics I enjoy listening to her I think I don't care what she writes about I just want her to read to me I enjoy her narrations to say the least

    "Will tear your heart out"

    I consider myself a pretty hard man. I've fought in combat, jumped out of airplanes, raced in Ironman triathlons but Amanda Prowse's story about how easy it is for a child to be struck by an eating disorder brought tears to my eyes.

    "A very hard truth to read."

    I found myself angry with the parents, even knowing their choices were impossible to make. Separating what's best for our children, and what they want is always difficult.

    "Such a well told story "

    A heart-wrencing recount of a family stricken by anorexia. Absolutely necessary to listen to or read if you or your loved one are struggling with a similar disease.
