“Not An Easy Child is an inspiring and delightfully entertaining book taking the reader into the surprisingly complex life and value system of a large working class New England family. Rusty Marie Belanger Wilson offers an engaging historical and personal anthology of a questioning Catholic woman struggling to understand and cope with the personal conflicts arising from blind obedience and free thought in a religious and secular society. Regardless of your gender, ethnicity or religion, the picture of her world offered in the pages of this autobiography which spans seven decades presents new alternatives and thoughtful insights to the often challenging, unpredictable journey of ones own life.”
-Peter Dixon, retired senior executive of IBM
