Publisher's Summary

When Queenie Hennessy discovers that Harold Fry is walking the length of England to save her, and all she has to do is wait, she is shocked. Her note had explained she was dying. How can she wait? A new volunteer at the hospice suggests that Queenie should write again; only this time she must tell Harold everything. In confessing to secrets she has hidden for 20 years, she will find atonement for the past. As the volunteer points out, ‘Even though you’ve done your travelling, you’re starting a new journey, too.’
Queenie thought her first letter would be the end of the story. She was wrong. It was the beginning.Told in simple, emotionally-honest prose, with a mischievous bite, this is a novel about the journey we all must take to learn who we are; it is about loving and letting go. And most of all it is about finding joy in unexpected places and at times we least expect.

Sweet and sad; a fabulous read!

What a fantastic follow up to "The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry". I loved this book as much as the first.

An honest adaptation of a love story I am sure many would have suffered over time. You can't help but adore all of the characters - and the narrator does a splendid job of giving each of them voice and personality.

I wonder if Rachel could bring any of the other hospice characters to life as she did Queenie? Truly talented.

A beautiful story!

I loved this book from beginning to end. It was sad but didn't make me sad, completely romantic but not in a sappy way, it tells a tale of life! Sound confusing? Not at all... the book is beautifully written and narrated, following perfect sequence while touching every emotion. Characters were believable and easy to connect to.The ending requires you to think of your own life and what you want from it.
