Flat Broke with Two Goats

Next. Financial disaster arrived in the lives of Jennifer McGaha and her husband. Her memoir of this time is a finely written book titled, Flat Broke with Two Goats. Some people look backward when they face unwelcome change, but McGaha seemed to always look forward. Along the journey from an ordinary middle class suburban life to living in a neglected one-hundred-year-old cabin, McGaha seems to shift in her perspective of where she finds value in life. As I read this book, I remembered hearing wisdom from Normal Lear about his life lessons, the most important of which were two words: over and next. Whatever happened is over. It’s time for what’s next, so get on with it. What McGaha ended up getting on with was less college teaching and more goat raising. Fans of memoirs will find a lot to enjoy in McGaha’s story.
