"Trish isn't perfect. She's divorced and raising two kids-so of course her house isn't pristine. But she's got all the important things right and she's convinced herself that she has it all under control. That is, until the day her youngest son gets hurt and Child Protective Services comes calling. It's at that moment when Trish is forced to consider the one thing she's always hoped wasn't true: that she's living out her mother's life as a compulsive hoarder. The last person Trish ever wanted to turn to for help is her sister, Mary-meticulous, perfect Mary, whose house is always spotless...and who moved away from their mother to live somewhere else, just like Trish's oldest child has. But now, working together to get Trish's disaster of a home into livable shape, two very different sisters are about to uncover more than just piles of junk, as years of secrets, resentments, obsessions, and pain are finally brought into the light."--P. [4] of cover.

This is a quick read but the author researched hoarding and the emotional behaviors associated with it well. She was especially successful with the emotions around the keeping of stuff, things, papers, clothes, mail,.........definitely had me thinking and reflecting.
