About the Book

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.
