Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Praise for The Burning Point
From the beloved author of Dandelion Mama, this long-awaited memoiris the story of how trust merges with betrayal, how love merges with loss,and how pain reveals itself as the catalyst for our most essential growth.
--Kathryn Lynard, author of The Year My Son and I Were Born

Tracy McKay's powerful memoir, The Burning Point is the kind of discoursethat I want to replace the heroic pioneer stories I grew up with. I want tounderstand the lived reality of modern Saints who have walked through thedarkness this world often offers.I want to be inspired by those who have foughtto find meaning as they've struggled to wend their way in tears of anguish,watching loved ones wrestle with the most destructive demons of our age.
--Steven Peck, author of The Scholar of Moab & A Short Stay in Hell

For every woman who makes the heartbreaking but utterly necessary choiceto leave, to start over, to make a new home, for her kids, for herself; for everywoman who will wake up alone this morning and do by herself the hard workof holding a family together; for every woman who puts one foot in front ofthe other, this book offers a safe space of wisdom, warmth, and understand-ing. Tracy McKay writes like the best friend you always dreamed of, theone who sits at your kitchen table and plainly, lovingly tells it like it is.. . . .I can't wait to give this book to the heroic women in my life who go it alone.
--Joanna Brooks, author of Book of Mormon Girl

A new standard-bearer of the modern Mormon memoir, this bookweaves together disparate social threads such as single motherhood,disability, drug addiction, education, and religion into a vulnerable anddeeply reflective tapestry of struggle, despair, and redemption that is notonly emotionally compelling but highly readable. Highly recommended.
--Jacob Baker, Instructor in Philosophy at Utah Valley University,PhD Candidate in Philosophy of Religion and Theologyat Claremont Graduate University
