As a child growing up in a small Louisiana town, Frances Boudreaux couldna€™t understand her mothera€™s 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 Dona€™t Shine and the Shadows Dona€™t Play shares a daughtera€™s struggle to comprehend her mothera€™s 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 mothera€™s obsessive compulsive disorder and speaks candidly about the abuse she suffered at her mothera€™s hands. A story rich in emotional complexity, this gripping memoir throws back the curtain on one familya€™s dark secret, and exposes the truth in all its facets. But even more, it reveals Francesa€™s determination to find healing and peace despite the scars of the past. a€œMs. 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.a€ a€”Bruce Mansbridge, PhDWe could finally go home for holidays or other important events. Daddy planned everything out.
