Fidelity: Five Storiesby Wendell Berry
"Berry richly evokes Port William's farmlands and hamlets, and his characters are fiercely individual, yet mutually protective in everything they do. . . . His sentences are exquisitely constructed, suggesting the cyclic rhythms of his agrarian world."--New York Times Book Review.

One of my favorite Wendell Berry books - a great lead in to the series of characters and places. Every book Berry has written, fiction, non-fiction, petry, and prose is a gem.
In a quintet of vignettes from Berry's make-believe Kentucky world, we are asked to see and understand the wonder and joy of common people performing acts of devotion, kindness and loving service. In a world of increasing distance and alienation, Wendell Berry celebrates a return to a culture founded on interpersonal sensitivity and concern and communal responsibility. His deeply held Christian ethic and practical application of moral principles are to be applauded. One of my favorite books and a frequent gift to friends who need to be uplifted or encouraged in their struggles and trials.
