The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy
Or the letter that was never sent to Harold Fry

The unforgettable novel of those we love but let go

For twenty years, their paths were separated. It only took a letter from Queenie, announcing her imminent death, for Harold Fry to decide to find her.

As he crosses England on foot, Queenie is growing agrain of their meeting. How can she face him? How can she tell him what she’s been keeping silent for all these years?

Queenie writes him a second letter. She tells him the whole story. This time, no more lies. It is time for her to let go of her guilt.

What in the earth did happen, twenty years ago, in that little southern English town, for her to want to leave it and never come back?

A story of missed destinies, tender and overwhelming

After the worldwide bestseller, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, Rachel Joyce gives us the heart-rending truth of Queenie.
