By Rachel Joyce
(Random House Export, Paperback, 9780857520654)
Publication Date: March 2012
Harold Fry is retired and sedentary â�� and in no way the sort of person who'd spontaneously decide to walk the length of England to visit a dying friend. Rachel Joyce's new novel, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, follows Fry as he does just that â�� and finds emotional awakening along the way. More at NPR.org
