A personal account of the links between a mystery illness and a troubled childhood.
'Crooked Angels' charts a journey in which a fit, successful woman wakes one summer's morning to find something terribly wrong. Unable to move her arms, within hours she is trapped in a cage of pain.
Her condition defies diagnosis until a wise osteopath helps uncover a history, terror from the past, which her body has stored and remembered for her.
Carol Lee's physiological whodunnit travels through Tanzanian landscapes and a Middle Eastern desert to track down the mystery illness which confines her to stillness. Unique in its portrayal of the link between old injuries and present trauma, this startling narrative tells of recovery through persistence, a change of heart, and the beautifully captured voice of a frightened - and irrepressible - child.
