    If you loved Harold Fry you will love this book as well

    I liked how we saw the tale of Harold Fry from Queenie’s side. I wish I reread The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry before I read this book. There was a lot of I have forgotten. My favourite part of the book was the ending. It was spectacular!! I was definitely thrown for a curve!! I loved it and hated it at the same time! (You’ll soon see why!)

    The perfect companion.

    If you have read about Harold Fry, you absolutely must read Queenie's side of the story. I loved both books. Tragedy, humor and love lost and found are the perfect combination.

    Surprisingly good

    I was not expecting the follow up book to be as good as it was. Well done and quite moving. She captures life in a nursing home identifying the full scope of characters who live there. The author recognizes that life continues as you enter your last days.

    The love song of Miss Queeny Hennessey

    The detail describing characters and scenes brings you a place believing you are there, the colours, sounds and emotions are so real. Queeny reminds me of someone I would like to sit beside and hear thier life story. The writing makes you believe that love is simple, and all around us.

    Poignant. Inspspiring

    When news of Harold Fry’s pilgrimage spreads throughout the hospice, so does a new atmosphere of hope. A banner is constructed and a special corner set up for Harold Fry’s postcards and to pin up any news of his pilgrimage. It becomes a great occasion any time a postcard arrives and everyone becomes part of the excitement. In between times, Queenie writes and writes some more. Even when she is fatigued and her hand is sore, she continues to write. Her story unfolds like memories do: sometimes 24 years ago, sometimes 4 years ago, and sometimes even further than 24 years ago. Queenie is writing a very long letter; she is also composing a love song. Queenie also knows that she will not be finished until she has written Harold with all the secrets she has harbored for years. Queenie burns for Harold’s forgiveness for one secret in particular. This book is beautifully written and the story is engaging from the first page. There are some tearful moments while reading Queenie’s journey through her life, yet nothing had prepared me for the end. When it was over tears were raining down my cheeks, wetly blending wonder and sadness together.
