Such Strength...

  • Oct 6, 2003
Rating:
+5
Jennifer Hendricks had a disease that ultimately killed her. However, the strength and courage she displayed while battling anorexia are very humbling. This book allows you to see the disease from the sufferer's perspective, rather than an "expert" perspective. When she knew she was dying, she asked her father to keep the journals she kept during her long battle and to try to do some good with them. He has kept his promise...the book is mostly taken from her journals with a few notes from her father to help clarify. It is an eye-opening experience to read about all that Jennifer suffered, both from her anorexia and from the attempts to "cure" it that ultimately failed.
