Browseabout Book Club - The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

The Browseabout Book Club will be meeting to discuss The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce.

Meet Harold Fry, recently retired. He lives in a small English village with his wife, Maureen, who seems irritated by almost everything he does. Little differentiates one day from the next. Then one morning a letter arrives, addressed to Harold in a shaky scrawl, from a woman he hasn't heard from in twenty years. Queenie Hennessy is in hospice and is writing to say goodbye. But before Harold mails off a quick reply, a chance encounter convinces him that he absolutely must deliver his message to Queenie in person.

In his yachting shoes and light coat, Harold Fry embarks on an urgent quest. Determined to walk six hundred miles to the hospice, Harold believes that as long as he walks, Queenie will live. A novel of charm, humor, and profound insight into the thoughts and feelings we all bury deep within our hearts, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry introduces Rachel Joyce as a wise and utterly irresistible storyteller.

The Browseabout Book Club is facilitated by Sherry Chappelle, and meets on the third Sunday of each month, September through May. Meetings begin at 3:30 PM and are generally over around 5:00. Come for one discussion, or come for them all. No registration is required - new members are welcomed, and old members are treasured.
