Hope and Other Luxuries: A Mother's Life with a Daughter's Anorexia

May 2015

Clare Dunkle seemed to have an ideal life --- two beautiful, high-achieving teenage daughters, a loving husband, and a satisfying and successful career as a children's book novelist. But just after one daughter successfully conquered her depression, another daughter developed a life-threatening eating disorder. Co-published with ELENA VANISHING, the memoir of her daughter, this is the story of one family's fight against a deadly disease, from an often ignored but important perspective: the mother of the anorexic.
