Hey Guys, The Redhead’s Back! – Rediscovering My Single Self While Going Through My Divorce by Laurie Loveman
It took me thirty years, and finding the notes I’d taken for a book I never wrote, to understand that the story I had been trying to tell all those years ago wasn’t about how fire departments operate, the notes were telling my story.
When you’re faced with divorce, getting back into the work force, raising two teenagers, and taking care of eight horses, it sometimes help to have a sympathetic ear. In my case, the sympathetic ear belonged to my horse, Amigo. Unsympathetic ears belonged to the men of the Shaker Heights, Ohio Fire Department where I spent time researching for a book about the fire service. This memoir is not just about me, though; it’s about the men who became my firehouse family. I shared their workdays, the good times, and the not-so-great times, and during the process I not only rediscovered the person I was before my marriage, I found a new career in the fire service.
Life Coach Rebecca Cagle said, “Laurie Loveman is great at telling her story . . . This story touched my heart, made me laugh, showed Laurie’s grit through tough times and her love for her horse, Amigo.”
