Blackbird, a Memoir
by Elena Sada
How can decisions we made in the past have seemed right when they were so wrong? How can we live with the consequences?
Blackbird—a Memoir addresses these questions through Elena Sada’s humorous and insightful story. It is the uplifting interpretation of a dark tale that begins the day she decides to leave Regnum Christi, a Catholic organization founded by sexual predator and Catholic priest Marcial Maciel.
After leaving the order, Elena finds herself in Manhattan, longing for the life she left at 19. There, she faces a difficult decision: whom to trust? A shattered love story is followed by a successful one, and Elena finally understands what happened to her under Maciel, and how to capitalize on each one of her scars.
