An inspirational story of the power of the mind to heal.

Australia, 1950s. Ivy, a teenager from an immigrant family, is on the cusp of adulthood, struggling to survive undiagnosed anorexia nervosa. She endures primitive electro-convulsive therapy and exile from her family, to no avail. It is only through psycho-analysis that hope is possible. Will Ivy conquer The Voice which tries to kill her?

A Dangerous Daughter is a work of literary fiction, which draws on true events from the author's life. It will resonate with people of all ages and cultures who have endured the shame and blame of this misunderstood disorder.

"Through deftly combining her life experience with fiction in A Dangerous Daughter, Dina Davis provides a window into the much-misunderstood eating disorder, anorexia nervosa, and the complications that surround it."
