Where the Sun Don’T Shine and the Shadows Don’T Play Frances Boudreaux read online review & book description:

As a child growing up in a small Louisiana town, Frances Boudreaux couldnt understand her mothers obsession with stuff. She stashed clothes, trash, and even worthless trinkets. It was only years later that Frances discovered the truth about her mother: she was an obsessive-compulsive hoarder. Brutally honest and emotionally-wrenching, Where the Sun Dont Shine and the Shadows Dont Play shares a daughters struggle to comprehend her mothers fall from happy teenager to house-bound adult living in the midst of filth and chaos. Spanning her childhood during the 1950s through her adulthood years, Frances traces the rise of her mothers obsessive compulsive disorder and speaks candidly about the abuse she suffered at her mothers hands. A story rich in emotional complexity, this gripping memoir throws back the curtain on one familys dark secret, and exposes the truth in all its facets. But even more, it reveals Francess determination to find healing and peace despite the scars of the past. Ms. Boudreaux allows the reader to experience the full gamut of intense, complex, and contradictory emotions of love, hate, fear, tenderness, caring, revulsion, anger, affection, hope, and despair that she experienced. This is a brilliant and moving book, to be read and never forgotten. Bruce Mansbridge, PhD
