    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.

    Story

    I really liked this book. It touched on so many facets of life that are so easy to push under the carpet. It examines the secrets people hold inside of them, eat them up but feel hopeless to discuss them. While being blunt and honest with the problems of the characters the story also fills you with compassion and hope. Harold and Maureen come to life and you become very close to them. You cheer Harold on - laugh at some of his encounters and shake your head at others. It is a thought provoking, tender, moving book that stays with you long after you're finished with it.

A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    Story

    This is my second Nora Roberts book and I have to say, I am becoming a fan. I'm usually not one for a lot of the romance, but Nora puts together a very well written story and had me hooked in the first chapter. Julia has an easy voice to listen to and did an exceptional job with the narration of all the characters. I had a hard time putting this book down - I love when I find a book that has me obsessed with listening until I finish it. This was definitely one of those books.
