An inspirational story of the power of the mind to heal.
Will Ivy conquer The Voice which tries to kill her?
Australia, 1950s. Ivy, a teenager from an immigrant family, is on the cusp of adulthood, struggling to survive undiagnosed anorexia nervosa. It is only through psycho-analysis that hope is possible. Drawing on true events from the author’s life, A Dangerous Daughter will resonate with people of all ages and cultures who have endured the shame and blame of this misunderstood disorder.
“Through deftly combining her life experience with fiction in A Dangerous Daughter, Dina Davis provides a window into the much-misunderstood eating disorder, anorexia nervosa, and the complications that surround it.”
