#1 Bestseller! A GREAT Summer Read!Amazon Best Books of the Month, July 2012: Harold Fry–retired sales rep, beleaguered husband, passive observer of his own life–decides one morning to walk 600 miles across England to save an old friend. It might not work, mind you, but that’s hardly the point. In playwright Rachel Joyce’s pitch-perfect first novel, Harold wins us over with his classic antiheroism. Setting off on the long journey, he wears the wrong jacket, doesn’t have a toothbrush, and leaves his phone at home–in short, he is wholly, endearingly unprepared. But as he travels, Harold finally has time to reflect on his failings as a husband, father, and friend, and this helps him become someone we (and, more important, his wife Maureen) can respect. After walking for a while in Harold Fry’s very human shoes, you might find that your own fit a bit better. –Mia Lipman“[A] gorgeously poignant novel of hope and transformation.”—O: The Oprah Magazine
