Meet a pair of beloved characters—Harold Fry and Queenie Hennessy—in an eBook bundle that collects two linked novels from a wise and utterly irresistible storyteller.';[Rachel Joyce] has a lovely sense of the possibilities of redemption. . . . She's cleared space where miracles are still possible.'—Ron Charles, The Washington PostRachel Joyce's unforgettable debut, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, became a runaway international bestseller as readers fell in love with her unassuming hero as he embarked on an incredible adventure spurred by a letter from his old friend Queenie. In The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy, Joyce reveals the other side of the story in a journey just as remarkable as Harold's. Together these exquisite parallel novels illuminate the feelings we all bury deep within our hearts, and the small yet pivotal moments that can change a person's life.Praise for The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry';[A] gorgeously poignant novel of hope and transformation.'—O: The Oprah Magazine';Joyce's beguiling debut is [a] modest-seeming story of ';ordinary' English lives that enthralls and moves you as it unfolds.'—People (four stars)';The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry is not just a book about lost love. It is about all the wonderful everyday things Harold discovers through the mere process of putting one foot in front of the other.'—Janet Maslin, The New York Times';A moving story about an ordinary man on an extraordinary journey.'—Nancy Horan, author of Loving Frank';A gentle adventure with an emotional wallop . . . a smart, feel-good story.'—Bob Minzesheimer, USA Today';I found myself laughing through tears, rooting for Harold at every step of his journey. I'm still rooting for him.'—Paula McLain, author of The Paris WifePraise for The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy';This lovely book is full of joy. . . . [Queenie's] love song is for us. Thank you, Rachel Joyce.'—The Washington Post ';Joyce's writing at moments has a simplicity that sings. She captures hope best of all.'—The Guardian ';[A] deeply affecting novel . . . Culminating in a shattering revelation, [Queenie's] tale is funny, sad, hopeful: She's bound for death, but full of life.'—People ';Like Harold Fry, Queenie is delightful and dark. . . . But Joyce is so deft that when the book is over and you close the cover, the darkness fades. What sticks with you is the light of Queenie's unwavering love.'—Minneapolis Star Tribune ';Wonderful . . . It is not necessary to read Harold's story before reading Queenie's to enjoy this bittersweet novel, which is a pleasure in its own right. However, reading both will only serve to double that pleasure.'—The Independent ';After two such involving novels, readers are bound to wish for a third.'—The Telegraph
