    Where do you find the blog comments for this year’s book?

    • Harold Fry was a very memorable character, just when he thought his life was over a simple postcard reminds him if his past and his pilgrimage brings him closer to his wife and reawakens his reason he gets up everyday! great book, loved it.

  • I was not very interested at all in the plot line of this book when I checked it out. But, page by page I became intrigued by the story of Harold and his past. I couldn’t put it down! It became a peaceful journey as we walked with Harold on his quest. I would recommend this book as an enjoyable read!

  • I really liked this book, and thought it was very well written. The plot kept my interest – the pace was good, and the mystery of just what past event could have compelled Harold to embark on his journey was cleverly revealed as the story unfolded. The main characters were very believable and drew me in to their differing viewpoints of life. The author’s descriptions of the natural world encountered by Harold while walking in the English countryside were gorgeously described. The end was sad and yet heartwarming at the same time. I’ve recommended it to my bookclub friends for our next month’s read!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommended it to my sister for her book club. The mystery of Harold’s past kept me reading and I was surprised to find out what really happened in his life. In some way or another, we all embark on a journey in life that shapes who we are and who we become because of it.

    I really enjoyed this book! I kept wanting to read more to see where Harold’s journey took him. I definitely would recommend the book!

  • The first part of this book moves very slowly but as you get into Harold’s unplanned journey, it gets interesting as he reflects on his past and the things he could have done to enrich his marriage and relationship with his son. Good read.

    I have really enjoyed reading this book. Although I can’t say that it was one I couldn’t put down, it was really a nice easy book to read. I loved learning more about Harold and I thought he was an endearing character. Definitely a book to make you evaluate your life a bit and help you appreciate the relationships with those you love.
