Liz Soden had had her life turned upside down when she became partially paralyzed after a freak accident. Then, years after the incident, she noticed that her husband kept going off on his own. When Liz discovered the real reason for her spouse’s sneaking around, however, she couldn’t help but cry.
Back before the accident in 1999, though, Liz had been a school bus driver and a reserve sheriff with plans to join the police academy. Her then-boyfriend Brad Soden, on the other hand, was a combat veteran and firefighter. And occasionally the couple’s jobs would overlap: if there was a nearby blaze, for instance, he sometimes fought it while she controlled the traffic in the area.
