Book: The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry: A Novel by Rachel Joyce
Recommended by: Karen, Assistant Director
Harold Fry is an ordinary man recently retired and living in a small English village with his wife. Normally his days drag on, one after another. However one day, Harold received a letter from a friend who is dying and in hospice. He replies and walks to the corner to post his letter. On his way, he has a chance encounter that convinces him to deliver his response in person. So begins Harold's pilgrimage, an ordinary man who goes on a remarkable journey, not just to visit his friend one last time but a journey that changes his life and those around him. I found myself cheering for Harold as he walked in his yachting shoes and was inspired by his journey. Great read.
