The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

He only meant to post a letter. But he ended up walking over 1000 kilometres. An unforgettable novel that is a success the world over.

“I’m on my way. Wait for me. I’m going to save you. I will walk and you will live.”

Harold Fry is deeply moved by a letter he receives from Queenie Hennessy, an old friend who informs him she is terminally ill. While his wife, Maureen, is busy upstairs and paying no attention to her husband, he leaves to post his answer. But he walks right past the letterbox and keeps on going. He leaves town on what becomes a 97-day journey, covering over 1000 kilometres on foot, from southern England to the Scottish border. All Harold knows is that he must keep on walking.
For Queenie.
For his wife Maureen.
For his son David.
For us all.
