When Harold Fry nips out one morning to post a letter, leaving his wife hoovering upstairs, he has no idea that he is about to walk from one end of the country to the other. He has no hiking boots or map, let alone a compass, waterproof or mobile phone. All he knows is that he must keep walking. To save someone else's life. Impossible to put down. One man's walk along the length of England to save the life of a dying woman. Each chapter describes a different encounter along the way, with a definite nod to Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. Philosophical, intriguing, and profoundly moving. Her books have been translated into thirty-six languages and two are in development for film. Rachel has also written over twenty original afternoon plays and adaptations of the classics for BBC Radio 4, including all the Bronte novels. Toggle navigation. New to eBooks.

He picks up a bunch of people on the way that want to do the pilgrimage with him. It's a motley crew that follows with him. Back at home his wife Maureen faces a number of demons on her own, and she comes to an awareness while her husband is on his unlikely pilgrimage. This is a heartwarming and profound book that even caused me to do some reevaluation of my own. As Harold says to himself, everyone looks normal on the outside, but you never know what is going on inside and what has happened to them in the past to shape them into the people they are now.

This was a Globe and Mail best book selection, and I understand why. I highly recommend this book.

Their branches swung in the breeze, beckoning him forward. Queenie Hennessy has terminal cancer. Harold, an ordinary man who has always tried hard to be unobtrusive, writes a reply, but on reflection, during his walk to the post-box, deems this insufficient.

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.

It is about all the wonderful everyday things Harold discovers through the mere process of putting one foot in front of the other.
