Reviews

"Flat Broke with Two Goats is a funny, moving and unflinchingly honest reckoning. Reduced by desperate circumstances, Jennifer and her husband find themselves living a life that echoes the hardscrabble Appalachian ways of their grandparents. This sweet miracle of a memoir tells the story of a struggling couple who have to lose their house, and just about everything else, to find home." - Tommy Hays, author of The Pleasure Was Mine
"An easy read with a warm tone, like hearing from an old friend, McGaha's memoir is touching, funny, and hard to put down." - Booklist
"An enjoyable back-to-the land memoir. " - Library Journal
"Flat Broke with Two Goats is a brave book written in beautifully unflinching detail. McGaha lays bare the flaws in her marriage, the poor choices that led them to rock bottom and how they found their way to a new definition of home." - BookPage
"You'll be alarmed, breathless, and ultimately charmed by "Flat Broke with Two Goats" because yes, it could happen to you...
" - Terri Schlichenmeyer, Bookworm Sez
