    Each day we face a barrage of images and messages from society and the media telling us who, what, and how we should be. We are led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead perfect lives, we'd no longer feel inadequate. So most of us perform, please, and perfect, all the while thinking, What if I can't keep all of these balls in the air? Why isn't everyone else working harder and living up to my expectations? What will people think if I fail or give up? When can I stop proving myself?

    Meet Harold Fry, recently retired. He lives in a small English village with his wife, Maureen, who seems irritated by almost everything he does, even down to how he butters his toast. Little differentiates one day from the next. Then one morning the mail arrives, and within the stack is a letter addressed to Harold from a woman he hasn't seen or heard from in 20 years. Queenie Hennessy is in hospice and is writing to say goodbye. Harold pens a quick reply and, leaving Maureen to her chores, heads to the corner mailbox. But then Harold has a chance encounter, one that convinces him that he absolutely must deliver his message to Queenie in person.

  • Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail (Oprah's Book Club 2.0)

    Story

    At 22, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State - and to do it alone. She had no experience as a long-distance hiker, and the trail was little more than “an idea, vague and outlandish and full of promise.” But it was a promise of piecing back together a life that had come undone.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Wild to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print. The audio was excellent and it was just what I wanted.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Wild?

    Cheryl's portrayal of her struggle on her Mom's 50th birthday was poignant and memorable.


    Have you listened to any of Bernadette Dunne’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not heard any others.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "Lions and Tigers and Bears Oh My!"


    Any additional comments?

    Truly enjoyed Cheryl's pilgrimage.
