Waterstones Says

Joyce's uplifting bestseller about an ordinary man's extraordinary odyssey from one end of the country to the other has been taken to the nation's hearts.

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.

MEDIA 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 - The Daily Telegraph

At times almost unbearably moving. - Sunday Times

“It's wonderful, a must read”

I really enjoyed the way Rachel drew you immediately into a situation that could have been any ones; the use of language that enabled you to identify with the characters, heartbreak, longing and loss.
