Topic: The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry
Someone bought me this for Christmas, I'd never heard of it. It was a bestseller a few years back apparently.
Harold Fry leaves his house to post a letter and carries on walking and walking. He walks to the other end of the country to see an old friend - the pilgrimage. He only has the clothes he stands up in and boating shoes on his feet. Along the way he encounters an assortment of people and hears their story and shares his own. His life and marriage is touched with sadness and the journey gives him the time and space to reflect and try to work out who he is and who he was.
Shot through it in three days. January the fifth and already read two books this year.
