Call of an Angry Blackbird

A gifted composer struggles to survive an abusive marriage. The third book of a unique and deeply emotional memoir by a woman named Carmen Angelina Coletti, a prodigy who was taken out of school when she was twelve years old and isolated from the world. Her simple, honest voice remains the picture of a young and reclusive country wife.

Abused since early childhood, her music is her refuge, with a gift for composition so complete that she is likely the world's first female great composer, some believing her to be the most gifted composer of all time. This revealing, often disturbing account uncovers the extremes of domestic violence, from inside the life of a woman who was born and raised in isolation, by a mother driven to madness by grief.
