You lie awake, needlessly fingering this patchwork guilt. Remorse, a code you live by; distress calls for someone to blame. --from "Threads"

Following the deaths of her Mennonite grandparents, Angeline Schellenberg began exploring in poetry their influence on her life. Her elegiac love letter to them articulates her grief against the backdrop of their involuntary emigration. She artfully captures the immigrant identity, vital to Canadian culture, in poems that draw on events both personal and global: war and famine, dementia and cancer, hidden sacrifice and secrets. Her poems captivate with themes of ancestry, memory, resilience, and forgiveness. Fields of Light and Stone is a reflection on how family history shapes and moves us.
