Afraid of the Light by Cynthia Ruchti

48848554Afraid of the Light

She helps others manage their desperate lives--but who will help her? Clinical psychologist Camille Brooks isn't put off by the lifestyle of her hoarding clients. After all, she lost her mother to the crippling anxiety disorder. She'll go a long way to help others avoid the same pain and loss.
Despite Camille's expertise, her growing audience for her Let in the Light podcast, and the national recognition she's gaining for her creative coaching methods, there are some things she isn't prepared for. A client who looks far too much like her mom catches her off guard. And the revelation that she's also hoarding something sends her spinning.

Can she stand to let the light into her own life with the help of a friend who wants to stand by her for life and the God who created and loves her? Or will she find that defeating her demons proves too much to bear? 

My Thoughts:
Having read several books by Cynthia Ruchti, I was thrilled at the opportunity to get my hands on her latest book. This book offers light, hope and Jesus to anyone in who is working through fear, addiction and anxiety. This book focuses on a difficult topic with hoarding, but does it in a way that is respectful, clean and tasteful through a fictional story. 
I appreciate how Ruchti handles this book. While the reader has a realistic perspective, the details are handled at a careful pace, while being sensitive to the reality of what people deal with. She weaves a romance story in a beautiful way that captures the reader. She ultimately allows the reader to see that through difficult stories, we find our hope and trust in one person. This is an awesome inspirational fiction story and you will highly enjoy it. I loved the faith element and the story telling through this book.
