Author : Rachel Joyce

The Unlikely Pilgrimage Journey of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce is one of those books that once started, you just have to keep on reading to get to the end. When Harold Fry nips out one morning to post a letter, from his comfortable bungalow in Kingsbridge, leaving his wife hoovering upstairs, he has no idea that he is about to walk from one end of the country to the other. He has no hiking boots or map, let alone a compass, waterproof or mobile phone. All he knows is that he must keep walking. His journey and the people he meets along the way are simply inspiring, and leave the reader thinking that there is some good in the world! Sarah Clarke at The Torbay Bookshop
