If you’re interested in joining me in reading an upcoming book, I’ll be reading “The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry” by Rachel Joyce during the month of April. It looks like a light, feel good kind of read.
Here’s the summary from the library:
“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.”
Hope you can join me!

I’m actually going to try and read this one! I look forward to it.
I just saw the book “The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy”, on Amazon. Are you planning on reading this one also? Both of these look interesting.
I forgot this was part of a series. I’m not sure about reading the Queenie Hennessy book. I’m about 1/3 of the way through Harold Fry and not exactly loving it. Please stay tuned and thanks for your comment! I love hearing from people!
Harold Fry is not light! It is a great book club book followed up by Queenie Hennessy. You must read both to get the whole story! Great books. I can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks.
You’re right. I totally called this one wrong. It’s actually kind of a downer. I’ll be blogging about it next week.
