Drawing inspiration from both contemporary psychology and ancient spiritual traditions, Catherine Wallace presents her vision of marriage as an art and a spiritual exercise. The rewards are limitless: properly nurtured, our sexual needs and vulnerabilities turn out not to be liabilities but powerful, generative gifts.

At a time when emotional commitments are increasingly fragile and short-lived, Wallace makes a direct and eloquent plea on behalf of sexual fidelity-its blessings, its demands, its moral and emotional necessity.

"A constant touchstone of realism and honesty.... A reasoned case where all too few are brave enough to venture. The New York Times

"[Wallace] makes an eloquent case for sexual fidelity." The New Yorker

"[Wallace] is a stylist and thinker of uncommon intellectual charm; she's that rare creature among writers, someone both witty and wise.... [For Fidelity is] rich and subtle." Hungry Mind Review
