Snow Falling On A Chestnut Hill
This book gathers the best works from John F. Deane’s previous works and adds to them with poems of meditation on Christianity in these troubled times.
Each of the twelve poems in the title sequence presents a movement of the spirit, from the author's childhood in the west of Ireland, through the death of a wife, to the birth of a grandchild. Arranged in the manner of an orchestral symphony, the sequence traces, phase by phase, the development of a Christian life.
Faith, in its broadest sense, is inflected by imagination.
