For twenty years, celebrated poet Micheal O’Siadhail’s beloved wife, Bríd, suffered from Parkinson’s disease. O’Siadhail’s verses explore the ordinary triumph of human fidelity and sound the depths of parting through a 150-sonnet sequence in which love faces wasting illness and the specter of death. There is tenderness, intensity, and gratitude—which will resonate with all who know both love and loss.
