Synopsis

If you have not read Heather King before, her honesty may shock you. In this remarkable memoir, you will see how a convert with a checkered past spends a year reflecting upon Saint Therese of Lisieux - and discovers the radical faith, true love, and abundant life of a cloistered 19th-century French nun. The provocative title is inspired by a portion of T.S. Eliot's Four Quartets that says we all choose to live "consumed by either fire or fire."

Heather King is an ex-lawyer, sober alcoholic, contemplative, and Catholic convert who lives in the thick of Los Angeles. She is the author of two previous memoirs: Parched; and Redeemed: Stumbling Toward God, Marginal Sanity, and the Peace that Passes All Understanding.

The left doesn’t want to hear from the woman who’s had an abortion because to feel remorse, shame, or doubt is to betray “the cause.” The right doesn’t want to hear from the woman who’s had an abortion because you’re going to burn in hell so why should you matter?
