The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce

The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry - Rachel Joyce

Read by Vincenza: The story flows wonderfully and, surprisingly, involves an actual pilgrimage as Harold decides to hand deliver the letter to his dying friend instead of posting it. It evokes Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales as he meets people along the way and tells a little of his tale and hears something of theirs. I haven’t finished it yet, and there is plenty of intriguing information about Harold and his dying friend yet to be revealed.
