The Love Song of Queenie Hennessy by Rachel Joyce

You must read The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry first. Harold receives a letter from Queenie informing him that she’s dying. We’re not sure what their relationship was but Harold writes back and walks to the corner to post the letter. Only he keeps walking and walking and walking – because he decides to bring it to her himself. The Love Song of Queenie Hennessy is the same story only told from Queenie’s point of view. The two books are so spiritual, so uplifting, filled with compassion and insight and humour. AMAZING!
