This is the compelling story of a sensitive, intelligent young woman who has to endure the extended emotional pain of an overly critical and detached mother and then a loveless marriage. This book helped me to better understand how family, interpersonal, and cultural pressures can lead to eating disorders. The reasons for anorexia and bulimia are extremely complex and this book explores them in an entertaining way. It has all the elements of a good novel, including humor, pathos, passion and danger. I am greatly impressed by the courage, honesty, and wonderful talent of the author, Lynn Ruth Miller, who based the characters and events on her own true life experience. I have been recommending "Starving Hearts" to my family and friends....

As with Late Bloomer, Lynn Ruth Miller's book is witty, funny and kind. Her genuine warmth leaves me feeling somewhat nourished.

A:Thoughts While Walking The Dog
B: More Thoughts While Walking The Dog

A collection of short stories, these two small books are also written by Lynn Ruth Miller. Well worth trying to find.
*Nameless*
This novel appears to have been written as a therapeutic exercise. The plot sounded interesting to me, but the book comes complete with pages and pages of blurbs from therapists about the therapeutic value of the text. So, I approached reading the book with a bit of trepidation.

I did find the plot to be engaging. Susan Talberg, coming of age in the 1950s, is overshadowed by her abusive mother and bratty sister. To cope with her family issues she falls into anorexia and bulimia. The trajectory will sound familiar: controlling food is the only way that Susan feels she can control her life. Over the course of the book the reader discovers that Susan's mother is a miserable woman with food issues of her own. Completely beaten down by her useless family, Susan's life revolves around sustaining her eating disorders and dealing with her abusive husband.

I would basically rate this book as acceptable. The plot is okay, but nothing special or earth-shattering. The book will likely be of most interest to those dealing with issues surrounding eating disorders in their own lives. This is not transcendent fiction; it is a story that deals with a specific issue. I suspect I might have enjoyed a memoir by Miller more than I did this book. Miller suggests in her acknowledgments that she has been through a similar series of struggles, and a memoir might have allowed for deeper insight than what this fictional story can offer.

When a friend, who thought it to be a terrific novel with a meaning, lent me Starving Hearts I did not want to be insulting by refusing it. Especially when I was told what the book was dealing with. After all, when I was growing up my family life was good and I did not have, nor do I have a problem with overweight, anorexia or bulimia. I promised myself to glance at the first few pages and do the rest by starting with my finger at the top of each page and go to the bottom to be able to say (I detest lying) I have gone through the book thoroughly. But I was wrong with my prejudiced attitude. The more I read the less could I put the book down. It was not anymore that I had nothing to do with anorexia or the likes of it, it was a book I began to live with. Susan Talberg became a person, became a friend, and her suffering became tangible to me. I read every word of the story and was sorry when it ended. I wanted to know the rest of Susan Talberg's life. Lynn Ruth Miller's writing is superb, it is smooth and it is fascinating.

But was is more tragic is the way in which is written, a very immature and superficial writing style of poor me, poor me and did I forget to say poor . I obviously found it compelling enough to read from start to finish but admit I felt I was starving for real substance. In saying that , I do need to add well done to the author the attempt.

A real straight forward, tell it like it really is book! The author shares the hard core truths of dealing with a dysfunctional family system and the almost deadly results of it living in it. The way the story is written is almost surreal, you can feel the author describing the eating binges that the daughter gravitated to in order to survive her mothers relentless efforts to abuse and punish the daughter because of her own unresolved pain. The author definetly has a tremendous ability in her writing style to draw one in so closely, that you actually feel like your living the traumas this family survived.

What a vivid account of life during a time when the general public knew little about eating disorders and abusive relationships! It makes me feel much more sympathetic towards people whose behavior appears strange. While it describes complex family and social environments with strong religious overtones, this book is also a gripping story - hard to put down and with a great mixture of humor, emotion and drama. A wonderful first novel - I'm looking forward to No.2!
I have had the pleasure of meeting the author, Lynn Ruth Miller, and find her as engaging as the book she has written. She is as real as the story. Having had an eating disorder all of my life, it was easy to relate to the character in her book (herself)and all that she goes through. But it is more than just about anorexia, it is about relationships and family dynamics. It all hit home very hard. It is a story told right from the heart.
