This book is one of those books that you just want to give to everyone because it opens a window to what it is like living with an eating disorder. Not only do you get to read what it feels like to have the disorder, but how the illness affects everyone, family, friends and yes... in this case, horses.
Grace is in a constant battle with herself. She knows she has to eat, but when she can go without food, she feels as if she is in control of her life. She has a counsellor from hell, Dr Kellor who sees the disorder but not the patient. As does her absent father, who cares so much that he wants to sends her to a specialist boarding school for those with anorexia, but doesn't seem to want to spend any time with his daughter at all. He hasn't seen her for so long that he doesn't even know her and yet, he feels it is his right to decide what is best for her life. Neither her father or Dr Kellor understand how important horses are to Grace, but thankful, her step-mother and Matt, a colleague, does. And unlike the paid professional, Matt knows just what buttons to push.
There is a scene in this book where Matt does something so utterly fantastic that it transforms the way Grace looks at herself, hopefully forever. It is a scene that will stay with me for a very long time. I won't give away spoilers, but please...read this book!!
I loved this book, and I think it can do a lot of good to those struggling with an eating disorder and for those who want to understand it. There is plenty of equestrian action too and a charmingly sweet romance.
I Highly Recommend.
I received a copy of this book from the author for review consideration.
I think that is a great book for any one to read who knows someone with this problem. Maybe it might help them both understand and the person the is willing to help them heal.
