Notes: 
Includes bibliographical references. --- Review, Network Spring/Fall 2003: Barbara Walters told 20/20 viewers that Peggy Claude-Pierre and her Montreux Clinic in Victoria, British Columbia, were “a last hope” for those critically ill with eating disorders. Oprah Winfrey tearfully described her as “an angel on earth.” This media coverage earned Claude-Pierre's clinic a worldwide reputation before allegations of force-feeding patients and patients being held against their will ultimately led to the clinic losing its license in 1999. In this book, journalist Barbara McLintock charts the rise and fall of Claude-Pierre’s clinic, and in doing so, tells a compelling story of desperate families grasping at unrealistic promises for a cure in the absence of proof.
