The Harold Fry and Queenie Hennessy 2-book Bundle: Includes: The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry and The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy by Rachel JoyceTwo beloved novels in one volume!
THE UNLIKELY PILGRIMAGE OF HAROLD FRY
Recently retired, sweet, emotionally numb Harold Fry is jolted out of his passivity by a letter from Queenie Hennessy, an old friend, who he hasnt heard from in twenty years. She has written to say she is in hospice and wanted to say goodbye. Leaving his tense, bitter wife Maureen to her chores, Harold intends a quick walk to the corner mailbox to post his reply but instead, inspired by a chance encounter, he becomes convinced he must deliver his message in person to Queenie--who is 600 miles away--because as long as he keeps walking, Harold believes that Queenie will not die. So without hiking boots, rain gear, map or cell phone, one of the most endearing characters in current fiction begins his unlikely pilgrimage across the English countryside. Along the way, strangers stir up memories--flashbacks, often painful, from when his marriage was filled with promise and then not, of his inadequacy as a father, and of his shortcomings as a husband. Ironically, his wife Maureen, shocked by her husbands sudden absence, begins to long for his presence. Is it possible for Harold and Maureen to bridge the distance between them? And will Queenie be alive to see Harold arrive at her door?
THE LOVE SONG OF MISS QUEENIE HENNESSY
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 twenty years, she will find atonement for the past. As the volunteer points out, Even though youve done your travelling, youre starting a new journey too.
Queenie thought her first letter would be the end of the story. She was wrong. It was the beginning.

It is a very vulnerable and different sounding song for her. I love it. They say that true love hurts, well this could almost kill me Young love murder, that is what this must be I would give it all to not be sleeping alone. The life is fading from me while you watch my heart bleed Young love murder, that is what this must be I would give it all to not be sleeping alone. Young love murdered, that is what this must be. I would give it all to not be sleeping alone!

By Happerson , June 17, in Kesha. I just found out that Harold from The Harold Song actually died.. I always thought the song was just about a relationship that didn't last This gives the song even more meaning to me right now.. Seriously, goosebumps all over my body and I could almost cry listening to it :'.
It's not that innocent. Lemme clear it up. Harold cheated on her after stringing her along - and it entirely broke her heart. Other songs are also inspired by Harold, notably "Your love is my drug" before he cheated, obviously. Stephen isn't a bastard, like Harold. Kesha was 15 and crushed totally hard on Stephen.
