The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

By Rachel Joyce. Random, $25 (9780812993295).


Joyce’s debut novel about a new retiree who embarks on a mission of mercy involving a solitary 500-mile walk across the north of England is quirky and charming but also haunting in its examination of love and devotion.
