The exorcising of Bill's childhood demons is a heartwarming success story. His youth, while spent avoiding a dysfunctional home, ranged throughout the war years in Niagara-on-the-Lake, getting in and out of more adventures than Tom Sawyer.
A target of a pedophile priest at an early age, Bill has channeled his adult energies into working with victim's outreach programs as well as publicly challenging Church hierarchies to "clean out the decay".
Throughout his memoir is the thread of love - for family; for Niagara-on-the-Lake; and for Joan, his partner in the success of so much of his life. And finally, in the end, we are left with HOPE.
