This book starts out with a touching premise, filled with English charm, and over time it reaches a much deeper emotional level. Good read for a glimpse into coping with strained relationships and loss of loved ones.

Harold Fry, 63 and retired, and his wife Maureen are at home on the southernmost tip of England, living isolated lives in a stale and loveless marriage. When Harold receives a letter from a former co-worker and friend, he is struck deeply by the news that she is dying of cancer. He writes a brief reply and walks the few steps to the mailbox, but can't bring himself to post his woefully inadequate response. He keeps walking, passing post offices and mailboxes until he realizes he must deliver the letter in person, although the trip is some 600 miles and he is without a change of clothes, a cellphone, appropriate shoes or anything he is likely to need on a walking journey. The people he meets and the memories stirred in him are life changing. A charming and gentle tale.
