Product description

When Harold Fry nips out one morning to post a letter, 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. To save someone else's life. "The odyssey of a simple man, original, subtle and touching". (Claire Tomalin). "From the moment I met Harold Fry, I didn't want to leave him. Impossible to put down". (Erica Wagner, "The Times").

Loved this book. It made me think of all the people in my life and how we must make the most of it.
Lovely read.

Review quote

"One of the sweetest, most delicately-written stories I've read in a long time. One man's walk along the length of England to save the life of a dying woman. Each chapter describes a different encounter along the way, with a definite nod to Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. Philosophical, intriguing, and profoundly moving." -- Richard Madeley Foyles website "Wonderful" -- Deborah Orr Guardian "At times almost unbearably moving." Sunday Times "A brilliant and charming novel: full of comic panache yet acute and poignant." Spectator "a gorgeously poignant novel of hope and transformation" Oprah Magazine
