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." -- Richard Madeley * 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 *
