Cynthia Ruchti's "Afraid of the Light," explores the intriguing world of hoarders. We've seen the television shows, we've heard the horror stories of people buried under piles of magazines, and we've even suspected our neighbors of suffering from this anxiety disorder.
But what is at the heart of hoarding?
Clinical psychologist Camille Brooks has experienced the heartbreak of living with a hoarder, and has dedicated her career to helping others with the same issue.
As "Afraid of the Light" opens, Camille is meeting a new client - one who looks a lot like her mother. Enough alike that working with her opens doors into Camille's past that she thought were dealt with long ago. With the help of the interesting owner of a trash removal service, some unexpected friends, and her loving Lord, Camille learns to pull back the curtains and face the Light.
This story of redemption, hope, and light is also a journey through healing that caused me to root for the characters I learned to love.
