Good morning! I hope your week is starting off well. I have a short post for this morning, a recommendation for an excellent book that I read this weekend.
The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, by Rachel Joyce, have you heard of it? You may have already read it, so I may be “late to the party” as they say. But I have just now gotten around to it and enjoyed it so much I read it in a day.
In a nutshell the book is about Harold Fry who receives a letter in the mail one day from an old colleague whom he has not seen for 20 years. Queenie, writes to tell Harold that she is dying and to say goodbye. Harold composes a note in response and while walking to the post box to drop off the letter he decides instead to walk the 500 miles to deliver it in person.
The book is an adventure, a quest of sorts, and an awakening for a repressed man and the people he meets along the way. As I always say, I do not want to tell you any more as I do not want to give it away.
I know that I am not telling you enough to hook you , but let me say that this is no ordinary adventure and no ordinary book. I know from other reviews that it is not for everyone but I enjoyed it tremendously.
Have a beautiful day!
