Michelle LeClair, Robin Gaby Fisher – Perfectly Clear

The revelatory memoir by former “poster girl for Scientology” Michelle LeClair about her defection from the Church, her newly accepted sexual identity, and the lengths to which Scientology went to silence it.

For years, Michelle LeClair, former president of Scientology’s international humanitarian organization, tried to reconcile her same-sex attraction with the anti-gay ideology of the church. Michelle finally ends her horrific marriage, finds the love of her life, a woman, and ultimately leaves the Church. But the split comes at a terrible price. Her once pristine reputation is publicly dragged through the mud, the police raid her home, her ex-husband tries to gain full custody of their children, and the multi-million dollar business she built from scratch is utterly destroyed.

In this tell-all memoir, Michelle offers an insider’s perspective on Scientology’s pervasive influence, secret rituals, and ruthless practices for keeping members in line. It’s a story of self-acceptance, of finding the strength and courage to stand up for your emotional freedom, and of love prevailing.

I enjoyed listen to Michelle story. I like how she stood for herself and the ones she loves. Courage to stand against a cult that doesn’t understand LOVE or FAMILY. Family comes in all forms and ways. Like this view from one that didn’t actually work or live in the Scientology campus but try to live the “religion” I listen to Jenna Miscavige Hill, Beyond Belief which is another great story of escaping and living to be true to yourself. I proud of Michelle and Jenna for getting away from a Cult. Like Michelle said she learn from the improvement of personal self from the Scientology practice but then Scientology have to take it to far and think they own you . I hate that Michelle had to lose so much but also love that she stood to cover her responsibilities. Michelle you have learn and live thru a lot but you are living your true self go be great and happy.
