Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“I don’t know how Michele Weldon made wrestling, breast cancer, and single parenting tie together so naturally, so beautifully, but in fact each is a perfect metaphor for this book’s message of soulful triumph.”   —Elizabeth Berg, New York Times–bestselling author, The Dream Lover

 

Deftly lacing heartbreak with humor and insight, Michele Weldon provides a potent antidote to the crazy, harried, single mom stereotype in Escape Points. Untethered from a comfortable, upper-middle-class life with a handsome but abusive attorney husband, Weldon relates the challenges and triumphs of the years that followed as she raised three growing sons alone in the face of cancer, an ambitious career, and the shadow of her ex. As she maneuvers through a complicated life of long daily commutes, radiation treatments, supporting three boys’ all-consuming high school wrestling careers, and trying to mitigate their hurt and resentment at an absent father, Weldon shows that single mothers, and their children, can succeed when others—neighbors, family, teachers, and in this case one incredible wrestling coach—step in to fill the void and the remaining parent stays the course with common sense and dutiful love.

Synopsis:

From the author of the riveting memoir "I Closed My Eyes" comes this original guide to journal writing as a tool for self-discovery. Weldon introduces the regimen of "scribotherapy" as a process for using one's own words to find relief from life's difficulties.

Synopsis:

Michele Weldon understands the healing power of words. Written words. Words that come from deep within ourselves. Unedited thoughts. Uprooted recollections. Unsettled feelings.

She introduces the process of scribotherapy as a method of using one's own words to honor life's difficulties and blessings. It is a regimen Weldon expertly practices and shares in this instructive and very entertaining book-offering essays, exercises, and encouragement to awaken the writer in you.
