Harold Fry, abandoned as a boy by his mother, kicked out by his father and cooly distanced by his beloved wife, touched me deeply with his humility, selflessness and unguarded heart. I appreciated the little gestures, the tiny moments of life that meant so much to Harold and to his friend Queeny, both of whose gentle spirits went largely ignored and unappreciated throughout their lives, even during a period of exaggerated attention. Tears filled my eyes more than once in listening to this book, but not in sadness. I would give this book a 4.5 (what book, after all, would be a 5.0? To Kill a Mockingbird, I suppose, and The Help), but such fine tuning is not offered.
