Advance Quotes!

[A]stonishing, shocking, loving…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.

An important book. Groundbreaking, demanding, brave and beautiful. Unforgettable fiction. Brilliant. The miracle is that, in Nattel’s hands, this book becomes a testimony to the fierce kindness in the human spirit that battles evil and wins.

The second of these quotes is by Sheree Fitch, the accomplished, vibrant, life affirming author of 23 books across adult, YA, and children’s literature, including Kiss the Joy as it Flies and Pluto’s Ghost.

The first quote is by Gail Anderson-Dargatz, writing prof at UBC and the prize winning author of The Cure for Death by Lightening, A Recipe for Bees and Turtle Valley, books rooted in land and hope.

Both of these wonderful authors generously read my novel in manuscript and responded with unbounded enthusiasm and these wonderful advance quotes for ARC’s. I want to thank Sheree and Gail from the bottom of my heart and on behalf of all those heroes to whom Web of Angels is dedicated.

Some background on what inspired Web of Angels here.



Lilian is the author of Web of Angels, a novel about a mom with DID (multiple personalities). She's also the author of the historical novels, The River Midnight and The Singing Fire, about secrets, friendship and motherhood in 19th century Poland and London.
