That disclosure cemented an enduring twenty-eight year friendship between the two via phone calls, visits, and letters. From Shirley’s first letter to her last phone call to Nancy, After Sybil is a revealing glimpse into the daily life of the woman whose sixteen personalities were merged into the one Nancy knew and loved.

  An Amazing Story of True Frienship , 03/26/2013
Reviewer: Michele Gouveia Allen
I have always had an interest in the woman named "Sybil" and was intrigued by the description of this book. I picked it up with the intention of reading a few chapters but before I knew it, hours had passed and I had finished it with tears streaming down my face. The beauty and love of the friendship between Nancy (the author) and Shirley (the real Sybil), the amazing women they both were/are, the entire story was moving and captivating. Sybil's World was so to be so much more than her dissociative identity disorder (DID)! Shirley was an amazing artist, a loving light, and a pure, although tortured, soul. I was deeply touched by the story of friendship. Nancy Preston's life and story of her letters and friendship with Shirley Mason is amazing. Thank you, Ms Preston, so much for sharing with the world! 5 Stars!!
