Loved this book. It was an adventure through space, culture, curiosities, finding oneself and it allowed me to lose myself while reading it.
Lovely, quick read, refreshing!

A wonderfully soul-inspiring book!

Magic and delight on every page

Did not want it to end. Looking forward to the next “Jewel” from Lorell, I am sure it will be just as captivating and page turning as this gem.

A captivating story of a soul’s journey across lifetimes throughout history. Captivating and inspiring to one’s own spiritual quest.

A profoundly mystical and mysterious journey

“Jewels in the Net of the Gods is a rare treat as it takes its fortunate reader on a profoundly mystical and mysterious journey through human history, culture and spiritual awakening. As it has been described in another review, the book is “half poetry and half magic”. But it also cleverly unveils hard won spiritual wisdom that has been gleaned by generation upon generation of human experience through individuals who have sought to live their lives with meaningfulness and purpose. There are many powerful messages contained hidden within the story but messages that are left open to interpretation and meaning as viewed through the reader’s own lens of inner awareness, self understanding and insight. It is a true treasure to read.”

Left me wanting more

Loved the intertwining -woven details throughout the lifetimes, & the different detailed scenes I must say I wanted more. The biggest surprise for myself was becoming aware again although I am a beginner in this journey, it reminded me to get back on my path, & for that, I am forever grateful.

Amazon Reviews

Jewels is a gem….

“There just aren’t enough books like this… Its an amazing story, a thought provoking adventure, and a wonderful teaching tool. I found so many incredible lessons about life and spirituality in the book, but without the typical self-help style of direct instruction. I also loved the global feeling – it takes you on an amazing journey through culture and time. Very cool. “

“Jewels in the Net of the God is a tale lived out across sacred traditions and time. It reads like an alchemical mix of mystical journey, spiritual autobiography, and love story woven through luscious lifetimes. The miraculous of the deep currents that carry us in this life swirl to the surface in each encounter, each chapter. Through this rich story these currents coax us to “meet ourselves in our own heart.”

A beautiful, enlightening book

“This is such a beautiful, enlightening book. I savored it while in bed on a lazy Saturday–nice to be able to read something with depth and substance in just a few hours. I was surprised and delighted by the end. I enjoyed the lessons in history and different cultures that were carefully woven through. A unique way of telling a story that was thoroughly enjoyable and uplifting. It’s also a powerful reminder about how humans are wired for deep connection. I would love to see this book made into a beautiful movie – a la The English Patient.”

“Dr. Lorell Frysh’s book is like a mysterious road map where all roads lead to a glorious meeting point that transcends time and space. A novel with both the mystery and the story to capture the reader as well as offering a guide to some of the great spiritual paths of the world.

A refreshing vehicle for spiritual wisdom & interfaith understanding

A beautifully written story. Woven across time and space, Jewels in the Net of the Gods is a magical, mystical story appealing to anyone interested in ancient cultures, spiritual wisdom, and the profound narrative of the human experience on the path of the divine. At this time when our world is in such disconnect, and we are so lacking in mutual respect and tolerance, Jewels in the Net of the Gods is a refreshing vehicle for interfaith understanding, reminding us that anything is possible when our hearts and souls are in the right place.

A beautiful book that brings comfort & meaning to our lives

This slender jewel of a book is filled with magic, wisdom, and enchantment. Every luscious word has been chosen with infinite care, and the stories within stories drip with beauty and mystery. It is a pleasure to lose oneself in the boundless, overlapping circles of time, where lives and destinies intertwine, mingle, separate, and meet again. This is a beautiful book that brings comfort and meaning to the lives of souls through the ages. For those on a spiritual journey, here is gentle guidance to the search for pathways to the truth and light within yourself.

Gentle and Compassionate

“This a beautifully written and tremendously engaging book. It flows like a gentle, fragrant sun shower.

Amazon Reviews

A must read, food for the soul.

“For anyone who has ever meditated, or for anyone who would like to know what it feels like, read this novel. It is a brilliantly written book which I wish had continued on and on. Every sentence is beautifully composed with purpose and meaning. Reading this novel was a spiritual experience that left me with a different and more elevated state of mind. It gave me a glimpse into other societies and other lifetimes putting my life into perspective, turning my mundane worries into something small and irrelevant. If you are looking for a feel good read, while expanding your consciousness, start reading. There is magic on every page, leaving you with good aftertaste long after you set it down.”

Jewels Addresses Our Humanity with Hope & Vision

What a shining jewel of a book! Stories as finely woven as the net of the title take us on a journey through time,
and places, ancient and modern, to its final denouement in the holy land. I especially loved the sensuality
of the narratives–the bells, the mosaics, the tea service, the sacred pools. A book that liberates us from our linear thinking–I didn’t want it to end!

5 Stars

I really enjoyed reading this book. The stories of different times, and different perspectives were woven together in an easy to read and beautiful manner. I was hooked to keep reading and find out how it all tied together. If you have a metaphysical view of life and experiences, you will be able to find truth and oneness interwoven within the story as well.

Beth Overstreet

Amazon Reviews

This is a wonderfully lyrical book.

“The story floats gently and passionately back and forward through the ages, connecting two souls together and weaving a most delicate tapestry. In some ways, as the story unfolded, I felt like I was observing a dream, for there was a billowy feeling about it all, as if the tale were about two clouds meeting in the sky, then parting, and then meeting again. I heartily recommend that you make yourself a cup of tea, get cozy, and enjoy this lovely story.”

“This brilliant book of wisdom and life lessons, is carefully hidden in the disguise of a beautiful story, half poetry and half magic. It takes the reader on a journey through time, culture, spirit and space—rich with beauty, mystery and understanding.”

Enchanting and lyrical!

This book captures you by the first few pages and keeps you entranced till the very end. Lorell is a very good writer and her style is immediately captivating. Her descriptions of landscapes are vivid you feel as though you are there sitting next to the characters enjoying the view. . The story is lyrical, beautiful and such a pleasure to read in these days of graphic violence and sexual content. You will not miss any of that type of graphic drama but will be enchanted by this gem of a book. It is so refreshing to read a novel about reincarnation and multiple spiritual traditions written by an author who truly understands those traditions as opposed to a blend of fantasy, religion, and spirituality. I agree with the many reviewers who have compared this book to The Alchemist. I highly recommend this book.

From the Bushmen in Africa to high society in Egypt, from Morocco to the caves of ancient Jerusalem, Moghul India to Medieval France, we meet priests and priestesses, Swamis and monks, midwives and healers, medicine men and aristocrats as we discover the intriguing stories of two souls, and two intertwined destinies.
Kundun, a Tibetan Buddhist Monk, is traveling to meet a Druze Sheik in the hills of the Galilee in order to discuss their common interest in reincarnation.
Liora, a young Jewish woman on a dedicated spiritual quest, finds herself drawn into the ancient courtyard of a monastery in East Jerusalem where she spends her day awash with memories…..of this life, and surprisingly, her past lives.
By the time we have traveled with the two of them on a journey that transcends time and space, we have been taken on a wondrous adventure.
In the process we discover not only where their paths may lead, but the heartwarming wisdom of our own inner journey!
