Feeding Eden is a unique food allergy book. It isn’t filled with checklists and recipes, rather it is a mother’s memoir of how life-threatening childhood food allergies affected the life of her family.
Susan doesn’t hold back in the details, giving an honest portrayal, but also providing hope that will resonate with many families who are finding themselves faced with food allergies, autoimmune disease, and other life-altering challenges.
Feeding Eden is a new memoir about how a child’s food allergies affect the lives of a family. I’m in the process of reading it, but it’s slow going for me–not because it isn’t compelling but because it makes me start to tense up and hyperventilate. Which means this book is an excellent portrayal of what it means to be a food allergy family.
I think it’s a good read for everyone. Food allergy parents will relate to it, of course, but more importantly, I think it is a great chance for others to get into the head of a food allergy parent.
