A Future for Tomorrow by Haley Hatch Freeman
I recently read A Future for Tomorrow by Haley Hatch Freeman. Haley is an amazing young woman who endured a horrific battle with anorexia nervosa. This book details her experience. At times, the story is intense and hard to read because of the emotional and physical turmoil Haley experienced during this physically-ravaging and mentally-deteriorating condition.
It’s a peek into the mind of a young woman absolutely obsessed with her weight and her distorted view of perfection. It’s frightening, at times, to read how completely this condition enveloped her. I found myself feeling overwhelmed by her account and was thrilled to read the conclusion of the story.
From the back cover:
A Future for Tomorrow is an extraordinary non-fiction account of the author’s actual battle against anorexia nervosa as well as a spiritual triumph against evil.
You will be brought into the anorexic mind, shown the fierce war against depression and self-depreciative thoughts and actions; and witness the gravity of the destruction this disease can do.
A deeply edifying experience will occur as you journey with the author to the eternal world. There, angels confirm to her gospel truths such as the intensity of Christ’s love, and the sacred and holy nature of our Father’s plan for his children here on earth.
Haley is a very spiritual young woman who has had some sacred experiences that she shares in this book. She is a living testimony of the power of love and faith. She’s sharing her story in an effort to prevent other young women from following in her footsteps. She tells a vivid and inspiring account of overcoming physical and spiritual roadblocks to find the true road to happiness.
