Review

NATIONAL BESTSELLER

“Right from the first sentence, Web of Angels is astonishing, shocking, loving. Lilian Nattel leads us in an exploration of how our communities cope with deep heartache, the loss of our young, and how we, as individuals, cope with trauma and the communities we carry within ourselves. Step into this novel and you will find yourself submerged; wake from it, and you will find yourself transformed. Web of Angels is a rare gift, perfectly named; within this novel, Lilian Nattel has offered us the work, the weave, of angels.”
––Gail Anderson-Dargatz, author of The Cure for Death by Lightning, A Recipe for Bees and Turtle Valley
 
“Groundbreaking, demanding, brave and beautiful. Web of Angels is a fiction about unspeakable evil rendered so (shockingly) true, the effect is devastating. The miracle is that, in Nattel’s hands, this book becomes a testimony to the fierce kindness in the human spirit, which battles evil and wins. Ultimately the book offers hope for what seems impossible: healing.”
Sheree Fitch, author of In This House Are Many Women and Kiss the Joy As It Flies

Format: Paperback
Beautifully and compassionately written, Web of Angels brings forward some painful realities with grace and sensitivity. Nattel's portrayal of the main character is realistic and well researched, presenting Sharon Lewis as a fiercely caring mother who also happens to live with DID. A story of courage and love that will keep you involved until the very last word.

Format: Paperback
DID (dissociative identity disorder) is something that we have heard and learned more about in recent years, so I thought it was great that Nattel decided to use this as her subject matter. I found it absolutely fascinating to read about and I could not wait to figure out where the book was going. I absolutely loved it and had a really hard time putting it down. I ABSOLUTELY recommend this book, but it is not for the weak of heart. The subject matter can be a bit intense in parts and sensitive readers should probably steer clear. I hope you love this book as much as I did!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Sharon Lewis is a happy housewife married to Dan, who owns a company that runs fundraising campaigns for causes that are both good and respectable. Both have three children, a teenage son named Josh, and two daughters, Emmie and Nina. Josh has a girlfriend Cathy, who is like a member of the family. All live in Seaton Grove, a city neighbourhood south of the railroad tracks.

One day Heather Edwards, a troubled and pregnant teenager, who is a friend of the family and Cathy's sister, commits suicide. The entire neighbourhood is shocked by this. This act is particularly unsettling to Sharon and she begins to lose control in keeping her own secret. No one knows that Sharon has dissociative identity disorder (DID), also known as multiple personality disorder. After hearing the bad news, Sharon feels strange and withdraws and when she looks up, she is someone else who could carry on the day. Her sister-in-law, Eleanor, notices changes in Sharon and she suggests that Sharon see a psychologist to help her overcome her strange behaviour, not knowing that Sharon has DID.

As a child Sharon experienced severe physical and sexual abuse by her father. In order to cope with such a horrendous act, she developed these "alters" or multiple personalities. As the story goes, the "alters" seem to occur spontaneously and involuntarily and function independently of each other. Sharon has given them names such as Lyssa, a little girl, Alec, who takes charge and others.

Web of Angels is a story about Sharon and how she copes now with the help of her psychologist, Brigette, in integrating all the personalities in the hope of living a normal life with her dear husband and children. Sharon is a very capable woman and is very well liked by her family and friends.

Format: Paperback
This is one of those books that changes the way you'll think about people. While about DID, the characters grapple with issues common to many people -- how to love a whole person, what baggage we carry from our childhoods, and why we cannot (and maybe should not) escape our pasts. Beautifully written and carefully constructed. It's honestly a must-read.

Format: Paperback
A wonderful read! As a therapist who works with dissociative clients, I can say that not only is this book compelling in a "can't put it down" sort of way, but it also is a very realistic portrayal of the inner life of someone with dissociative identity disorder. Sensitive topics are covered in a non graphic matter. Highly recommended!

Format: Paperback
Although I love Lilian Nattel's work in all its diversity incisive, loving and lyrical, I was bit reluctant to pick this one up, the stigma and taboo surrounding DID made me to regard this as a "heavy read." I was wrong. I was riveted by Sharon Lewis. Part thriller, part observance and part compassionate commentary (without being cloying) I could not put the the book down. (Warning do not start this novel as a bed time read).
