A New NameJackie Rowe, via The Good Book Stall
The subtitle for Emma's book is Grace and healing for anorexia. I found it hard to put this book down. Emma's skill with words and her absolute honesty gripped my attention on every page. This is really the 'inside story' of anorexia in stark and shocking words. Emma tells her story, beginning with her early years growing up in Belfast, the turmoil of her teenage years as anorexia began its strangle-hold on her body, soul and spirit, through her recovery and subsequent relapse, right up to the present day. She also gives us a glimpse of the devastation in her family, caused by her illness.
Anorexia has damaged her body, so that she now lives with many physical limitations, but her spirit is strong. She is passionate about warning others of the darkness and the horror that she endured for so long. In spite of the rawness of the sharing, this book is full of hope. If you yourself are struggling with an eating disorder, or you know someone who is, this book is an absolute must-have.

'I could not put this book down. It had me gripped from the first page. It is an autobiographical account of the authorís struggle with life-threateningly severe anorexia. Not the cheeriest of topics but this is compelling and readable without feeling voyeuristic. It is beautifully written. Being an Oxford English graduate and a self confessed perfectionist probably helps. Her passionate personality is able to walk off the page and she seems effortlessly to say what she means. She is able to explain what anorexia feels like, what drives it, what in her head she was hoping to achieve, and the factors which meant she chose this way to cope with life. I have never read anything about eating disorders which approaches this in clarity and insight. Emma is intelligent, articulate, analytical, theological, was severely affected and is now recovered.' - Annie Gemmill, GP and minister's wife
