When Queenie Hennessy discovers that Harold Fry is walking the length of England to save her, and all she has to do is wait, she is shocked. Her note had explained she was dying. How can she wait? A new volunteer at the hospice suggests that Queenie should write again; only this time she must tell Harold everything. In confessing to secrets she has hidden for 20 years, she will find atonement for the past. As the volunteer points out, ‘Even though you’ve done your travelling, you’re starting a new journey, too.’
Queenie thought her first letter would be the end of the story. She was wrong. It was the beginning.Told in simple, emotionally-honest prose, with a mischievous bite, this is a novel about the journey we all must take to learn who we are; it is about loving and letting go. And most of all it is about finding joy in unexpected places and at times we least expect.

Excellent sequel to Harold Fry
A worthy companion for "Harold Fry"
This was one of those beautiful, gentle listens that was a pure pleasure from start to finish. Rachel Joyce's writing style is very pleasing and Celia Imrie's narration is superb.
I already loved Harold, and this book lets the reader fall in love with Queenie.
I enjoyed the whole book, so there is no one particular scene.
I did find myself listening to it as often as possible.
Although this book stands up by itself, I would recommend reading "The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry" first. That audiobook is narrated by Jim Broadbent and it's wonderful.
