The Last Ride In to Readville
When they talk about it now, the Boudreau siblings will say all the moving they did as children left them lacking their own, true sense of place—all thanks to their crazy parents. But all those moves are just a part of this story. After surviving physical and psychological abuse and more than seventy moves all around Boston by age eighteen, Michael Boudreau escaped into the wild blue yonder before returning home after thirty years. His father had long died, his mother’s psychological grip remained firm, and his several siblings were still coping with bitter feelings they held toward them both. Most of them were mired in painful memories but clinging with a vanishing hope that somehow Ma would show contrition and offer penance for herself and her late husband. Nevertheless, the author jumped back into the center of his sideways family in hopes of helping them all—including himself—to find answers, healing, and maybe even forgiveness.
