Rusty Marie Belanger Wilson’s new book Not An Easy Child ($20.99, paperback, 9781545602362; $9.99, eBook, 9781545602379) is the compelling historical and personal story of a questioning woman born into a large religious family struggling to understand and cope with personal conflicts arising out of the concept of blind obedience in her Catholic teachings versus free thought in a secular society. Her personal and revealing stories span seven decades of cultural and religious changes, propelling her to continuously challenge and redefine the teachings of her youth against the philosophies and ideologies of her culture as they impacted her thoughts and beliefs during the course of her life while maintaining her absolute belief in God. Readers of all ages, whether religious or secular, will enjoy various revealing personal accounts contained within this book as the author confronts outdated convictions and the unexpected challenges of dealing with conditional love from those who claim to love her, yet fail to do so when she thinks or behaves differently than their expectations within changing religious and secular cultures.
Wilson writes, “This is a book appealing to all ages of diverse cultures as it illustrates the external and internal struggles young people go through on their way to adult maturity as well as the challenges encountered during the course of adulthood when deciding their own fate and defining their values and beliefs. Its essence is captured in personal accounts illustrating the manner in which the author faces traditional institutionalized tyranny, a home dominated by the iron hand of a father, and the consequences of a woman going against those tenets while embracing the freedom of self-expression and free thought.”
