The title "Fidelity" plays not only with the concept of fidelity in marriage but also in friendships and in one's own principles and ethos.

I have read the Book it is very sad and emotionale purpose of my reading his Book was to prepare myself to play the charector of Caleb Evans in a Play performed at Nortland Pioneer College called Intimations of the Brook. it was a very hard experiance for me because it took all of the physical and mental streangth I had to do so.
Rather beautifully written but a tad melodramatic at times.I did rather like the way my reactions towards the various characters changed over time as did those of the characters. The analysis of the effect of an unhappy life and the consequent embittering was excellent.
