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.

“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.
