About the Author

Sarah Tate is a single mother living and working in Switzerland. She arrived in Switzerland ten years ago and apart from a brief stay in France, has remained ever since, as Switzerland has become her adopted homeland. Sarah has three young kids, who take up most of her time, but she still managed to find time to write her first book 'Web of Lies - My life with a Narcissist'. The book is an auto-biographical novel which describes in graphic details, the ups and downs of life with a person who suffers from (amongst other things) Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Web of Lies takes the reader on an emotional journey and gives a deep insight into what it's like to be sucked into the world of a disordered individual, and more importantly, how to escape with your sanity in tact. Her second book, with the working title 'Renaissance - A Journal of Disovery' is a work in progress. It describes the road to recovery from narcissistic abuse, and charts the progress of Sarah and her children as they rebuild their lives following the break up of the family, and slowly come to terms with the devastation caused by Sarah's ex. Sarah's third book 'The Middle Aged Twist' will be out in late 2012

There are times, when reading this book, that we must ask ourselves - How could these things have happened? How could an apparently intelligent woman allow herself to be continually deceived by the verbal manipulation of a man who clearly suffers from Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Perhaps there was no reason for suspicion during the courtship stage, when he showered her with attention, lavished her with gifts and impressed her with his intelligence. Perhaps she was blinded by her concern for her children when their apparent financial stability started to come apart at the seams. But there came a time when she still wanted to believe, even when all of the signs told her otherwise. And even then, she was unable to make the decision to leave him.

It would be too easy to judge, from the outside looking in. Why didn't she listen to her friends, why didn't she listen to her family. Why didn't the fact that he was married twice before, and one of his wives had committed suicide, not to set off an alarm far earlier than it did? And why didn't her concern for her children lead her to leave him rather than convince her to stay with him, until it was almost too late?

But most of us know someone who has been in a similar situation. That is why Sarah Tate's book is so important. To tell an important story - a confession of sorts. An open, honest and often painful appraisal of her life and who she was during this time. Perhaps, when we know of friends who are lying to themselves in similar situations, we should simply give them this book to read, rather than offer advice that we know they will ignore. Let them read and recognize her words as words that they could have easily uttered themselves.

We live in a world where reality is very elusive.

Anyone reading this book who has not had 'dealings'with a narcissist would probably find this book a walk in madness.
But for those who have had their lives hollowed out by a parasite posing to be intially your friend and 'soul mate', Web of Lies is an accurate case study of the typical experience.
There were times when this case study could be a transcript of my own experience so I found the book one I was compelled to read. The flagship honey moon start, lies from the 'get go', lots of drama and unhappiness once your life is aligned within this crazy existance. The book would be worth a read of anyone who wonders if they are going mad or possibly their partner has some weird issues that border on just rediculous.
This book has joined the many I explored to find some understanding of my own experience. As so accurately written so many times, it is the victims that seek therapy and try to rebuild. The narcissist just moves their nest and destructive pathological lies and attaches to the next unsuspecting person.
Well done to the author Sarah, not an easy experience I imagine, but writing it out, alerting others, becoming more self aware, all assists us to rebuild.
I would recommend this to anyone dealing with narcissists, the problem being, once you recognise it, it is usually too late.

Follow Sarah on an emotional roller coaster from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows as the wife of a Narcissistic man. This is a story of a young woman being swept off her feet by the man of her dreams, only to find that the life of luxury he provides is one full of stress, abuse, neglect, and lies. This auto-biography takes you through the years of Sarah's marriage to this charismatic man, to include the births of their three children. You become emotionally invested in this story as you read further and further into the story of her life.

This story makes me think of my first marriage. It makes me think if I hadn't gotten out as quickly as I did, how my life might have turned out so much differently. You begin to see inside the relationship, instead of seeing it from the outside-in. You begin to see the suffering one goes through privately, while trying to hold things together publicly.

This book is a very good read. In fact, I managed to read the entire book in only a couple of hours. I am really glad that Sarah found her way out of the situation she found herself in. I am also sad that other women had been and would continue to fall victim to such a man. Mental illnesses so often go undiagnosed and untreated in so many lives. This book serves to shed light on a personality disorder that will destroy the lives of people all around the individual it affects, while the actual individual continues to blame his or her misfortunes on someone else. I applaud you, Sarah, for sharing your story with the world through your book.

I'm giving this book 3½ spiders and recommending it to everyone.

New author Sarah Tate brings a tale of domestic horror to the table with her first book, Web of Lies. Not a story of wife beating, but one of an abuse that is, perhaps, even more insidious, even more shocking.
Unputdownable, the book tells of the effects of becoming involved with a man who is a narcissist. At first charming and romantic, Bill woos the young Sarah with a courtship beyond her wildest dreams, but after she agrees to marry him, his true nature and extreme narcissism begins to show, resulting in an unstoppable chain of disasters that leave Sarah and her children struggling to survive.
If you've never heard of Narcissistic Syndrome, read this book. If you identify with the plight of a young wife and mother, stuck in an intolerable situation, read this book. If you want to pick up a book that will keep you reading deep into the night and won't let go until you have turned the very last page...read this book.
