The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce

Harold Fry is convinced that he must deliver a letter to a colleague he once knew briefly, but to whom he hadn’t spoken in 20 years, in order to save her.  He meets various characters along the way and reminisces about the events of his past and people he has known, as he tries to find peace and acceptance.   “Joyce’s debut novel is a gentle and genteel charmer, brimming with British quirkiness yet quietly haunting in its poignant and wise examination of love and devotion,” Booklist.
