When your child has anorexia. A mother’s survival story.

Anne Tonner didn’t know much about eating disorders. As a human rights lawyer and mother of four, she knew they existed but she didn’t know how they could take someone to the brink of self-destruction and sometimes beyond. But then one day her 13-year-old daughter Chloe told her she wouldn’t drink water because she thought it would make her fat and suddenly she was faced with a frightening reality. Anne has written a book about that time, called Cold Vein, in the hopes she can educate people about what anorexia is really like.
