“The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry” begins when Harold Fry, a retiree living in an English village, receives a letter from Queenie Hennessy, a friend whom Harold has not seen in years. Queenie has written to tell him she is in hospice.
Harold dashes off a quick note to Queenie but as he walks to the mail box to send the letter, he finds he is driven to deliver the letter to her in person—and on foot!
The book takes us on Harold’s journey. Not only is it a physical journey but it is emotional as well, as he comes to terms with his own failings with the relationships in his life. He meets many people along the way, reinforcing an important life lesson that our first impressions of people are not always correct.
It is a well-written book that I hope you will enjoy as much as I did.
