Description

?[Rachel] Joyce?s beguiling debut is [a] modest-seeming story of ?ordinary? English lives that enthralls and moves you as it unfolds. People (four stars) NATIONAL BESTSELLER ? LONGLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE Meet Harold Fry, recently retired. He lives in a small English village with his wife, Maureen, who seems irritated by almost everything he does. Little differentiates one day from the next. Then one morning a letter arrives, addressed to Harold in a shaky scrawl, from a woman he hasn?t heard from in twenty years. Queenie Hennessy is in hospice and is writing to say goodbye. But before Harold mails off a quick reply, a chance encounter convinces him that he absolutely must deliver his message to Queenie in person. In his yachting shoes and light coat, Harold Fry embarks on an urgent quest. Determined to walk six hundred miles to the hospice, Harold believes that as long as he walks, Queenie will live. A novel of charm, humor, and profound insight into the thoughts and feelings we all bury deep within our hearts, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry introduces Rachel Joyce as a wise?and utterly irresistible?storyteller. ?[A] gorgeously poignant novel of hope and transformation. O: The Oprah Magazine ?A cause for celebration . . . [Joyce] has a lovely sense of the possibilities of redemption. In this bravely unpretentious and unsentimental take, she?s cleared space where miracles are still possible. Ron Charles The Washington Post ?The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry is not just a book about lost love. It is about all the wonderful everyday things Harold discovers through the mere process of putting one foot in front of the other. Janet Maslin, The New York TimesLook for special features inside.
