Caroline Adams Miller appeared to have the picture-perfect life: an upbringing in an affluent Washington, D.C. suburb, a loving family, athletic achievements, academic success, and admission to Harvard University. Unknown to her family and friends, however, Caroline was bulimic and spent many solitary years pursuing her addiction to binging and purging large quantities of food before it almost killed her. MY NAME IS CAROLINE is the inspirational story of how she managed to admit her shameful secret to her husband and family, and then seek help. Her extraordinary journey to health and well-being has moved thousands of readers to seek help for themselves, and many professionals praise the book as an essential tool in helping families understand the complicated dynamics of eating disorders.

About the Author:

Caroline Adams Miller grew up in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. and graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University. She has written four books, including My Name is Caroline, Feeding the Soul, and Bright Words for Dark Days. She founded and ran The Foundation for Education about Eating Disorders for many years, and also helped to open in-patient hospital units for women with eating disorders. She now coaches women with eating disorders and lives in Bethesda, Maryland with her husband and three children.

From Library Journal:

Miller comes from a wealthy, Harvard-educated, competitive background. Early on she developed disordered eating patterns that led from compulsive dieting and binging through addiction to exercise, anorexia, drug abuse, shoplifting, and bulemia, none of which seems to have interfered with her academic achievements, competitive swimming, marriage, or public relations career. This account of her gradual recognition of the problem and her recovery, with the support of a group, is a compelling personal narrative for those who can identify. For the rest, Miller never really deals with the political and social implications her story raises. Beverly Miller, Boise State Univ. Lib., Id.
