The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

Recommended Posts

If you haven't already read THE UNLIKELY PILGRIMAGE OF HAROLD FRY by  Rachel Joyce then put it on your reading list now. It's brilliant, and is in turns funny, heart wrenching and nostalgic.Anyone who is of a certain age should identify with HAROLD as he goes about his journey.The author has written a lot for radio, mainly plays, but this is her first novel, and I can't wait for her second.I think it will appeal to both men and women, put particularly slightly older readers.I read it twice on my Kindle, to get bits that I missed first time around.

Harold Fry goes out one morning to post a letter, but simply keeps on walking, from Devon [where he and his wife lead a rather cold marriage because of past heartbreak] to the North of England. His thoughts, and the people he encounters on the way, make up the content  of the book.
