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.

Review quote

"One of the best books you'll read this year" Daily Mail "Wonderful" Guardian "At times almost unbearably moving" Sunday Times "A brilliant and charming novel: full of comic panache yet acute and poignant" Spectator "Tender and funny, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry shows that even our frailties can be uplifting and redemptive." Edward Stourton
