Life is a mucky mess: slogging through overdue bills, squabbling kids, and unending monotonous chores. We all need help, like author Ann McCarthy’s s bright red galoshes, to protect us as we trudge through.
With humor and candor, Red Galoshes reveals the real, messy life of an abused wife and mother of six as she travels through unthinkable and heart-wrenching memories. McCarthy shares how she navigates pain, mistakes, regrets, and shame with joy, grit, and companionship. Throughout the journey, a loving and protective God provides grace and guidance.
Each part of this memoir offers a collection of stories from a specific season of her life. Each chapter includes an experience followed by a reflection. These reflections contain McCarthy’s thoughts in hindsight as well as encouragement that connects her journey to your own. A story of God’s faithfulness, miracles, mercies, and love, Red Galoshes also provides perspective and resources to better support the abused and/or single parent in neighborhoods or churches.
