About the Book Fidelities

Fidelities resonates with the invocation to "make everything possible" in our own lives. Whether recalling moments of childhood, conjuring stories of human bonds, or prolonging the light of Colville, Giacometti or Vermeer, these passionate poems invite us to travel "from underground passageways into the sun."

Welch is "a traveller, venturing into the unexplored frontiers of her imagination from her ... vivid memories of the past and her rock-solidness of the present."
Shaun Hunter, Journal of Canadian Poetry, 4, 1989
