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.
Uplifting, funny and delicate
A wonderful book ... Full of sadness, hope, and ultimately love. I found it very moving.
Tender and funny, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry
shows that even our frailties can be uplifting and redemptive.
Harold Fry is infuriating, hilarious and completely out of his depth, but I held my breath at his every blister and cramp and, felt, as if by turning the pages, I might help his impossible quest succeed. Marvellous!
