    When Derek Sodoc, only son of the world's richest and most powerful man, dies attempting to climb Mt. Everest, questions are raised. Was it the mountain? Or perhaps something more sinister? After reading the book Abandoned on Everest, which details Derek Sodoc's untimely death, Sodoc's father convinces the surviving expedition members to return to Everest, presumably to recover Derek's body. With billions at stake and a relentless father searching for someone to blame, everyone is a suspect.

    Story

    This is WAY more than anyone would want to know about climbing Everest - poor editing, 5th grade level writing, and intrusively irritatingly repetitive musical interludes. The author may know a lot about climbing to the top of big hills, but he seriously needs a class in Creative Writing.

    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.

    Would you listen to The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry again? Why?

    No better narrator for this lovely story than Jim Broadbent. Will definitely look for more of Rachel Joyce's work. She definitely knows her characters well.

    Molly Peel has been downtrodden for years, but everyone has their sticking point. At her daughter’s wedding she’s side-lined in favour of her ex-husband’s new wife. Her son, who lives with her, isn’t paying his share of expenses. It’s time to move on and make a better life for her. Molly leaves London, looking for a job, and finds more than she bargained for, including a new chance of love – if she can pluck up the courage to seize the moment.

    A lovely little romance, if somewhat predictable...everyone gets what they deserve , and it's a nice "listen" as they get it.
