My Review | The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold FryThe Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The story of a recently retired man, who was sitting around doing nothing when he receives a distressing letter from an old co-worker. She has cancer and she’s written to say goodbye. He writes a reply. He walks it over to his post office, but in the spur of the moment, decides to deliver the note in person … by walking to the hospice 500 miles away. He thinks if he keeps walking, she will keep living. This long walk gives him plenty of time for reflection. He was attempting to help his friend, but also to atone for his mistakes. A pilgrimage. Eccentric, sad, inspiring, hopeful, real.
