    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.

    No


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, I particularly enjoyed the self discovery and personal reflection that Harold experienced as he made his journey. It makes one think about the choices we make as we live our own life. I also loved watching his marital relation evolve as he evolved. The book has an improbable start and a sweet ending.
