YOU ARE WHAT YOU READ
Tiny Tina the Basement Dweller is on the move! Go Tina! “I just finished reading Wild and loved it. Trekking the Pacific Crest Trail seems like a breeze after this week. I just started reading The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce. Why am I reading all these books about walking?”
Pat T. is also walking! “I am meandering along with Harold from the book The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce! Harold is a complacent retired gentleman set in his ways, but all this changes one day when he receives a letter from a long lost friend. Queenie is in hospice and wanted to say goodbye to Harold. Harold decides to do something extraordinary! He sets out to walk 660 miles to visit Queenie. On this journey Harold reflects on his life, his relationship with his wife Maureen and son David and is surprised by the kindness of strangers who give him shelter and help care for his blistered feet and aching body. One of our library friends who hails from England, Alan, recommended this charming book to me!”
