Five stars for Harold Fry, I loved this book.
Recently retired Harold gets a letter one day from an co-worker he hasn’t seen in years, someone that he feels some regret towards. She is dying. Harold decides to reply to her letter in person, but first must walk the length of England to get to her. He leaves his wife behind and starts on a journey of remembering, maybe not resolving the past but reflecting on it along the way. He meets many people, and has some surprising experiences, some helpful, some healing. He learns that everyone has unexpected stories to tell.
This book has a few twists and turns which are unpredictable. These add depth and integrity to Harold’s story.
Highly recommended, especially to my mature customers.
