____________________

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.

Harold Fry is the most ordinary of men. He just might be a hero for us all.

The Unlikely Pilgrimage Of Harold Fry Reviews

One of the sweetest, most delicately-written stories I've read in a long time. One man's walk along the length of England to save the life of a dying woman. Each chapter describes a different encounter along the way, with a definite nod to Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. Philosophical, intriguing, and profoundly moving. * Foyles website *
Uplifting, funny and delicate -- Jon Stock * The Daily Telegraph *
At times almost unbearably moving. * Sunday Times *
A brilliant and charming novel: full of comic panache yet acute and poignant. * Spectator *
one of the most moving, uplifting, inspiring novels I've ever read * Richard Madeley *
