From the author of the 2 million+ copy, worldwide bestseller, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, an exquisite, funny and heartrending parallel story.


When Queenie Hennessy discovers that Harold Fry is walking the length of England to save her, and all she has to do is wait, she is shocked. Her note had explained she was dying. How can she wait?


A new volunteer at the hospice suggests that Queenie should write again; only this time she must tell Harold everything. In confessing to secrets she has hidden for twenty years, she will find atonement for the past. As the volunteer points out, ‘Even though you’ve done your travelling, you’re starting a new journey too.’


Queenie thought her first letter would be the end of the story. She was wrong. It was the beginning.


Told in simple, emotionally-honest prose, with a mischievous bite, this is a novel about the journey we all must take to learn who we are; it is about loving and letting go. And most of all it is about finding joy in unexpected places and at times we least expect.

Book of the Month - Oct 2014

After falling in love with The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry we were desperate to read The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessey. Queenie herself is quite an elusive character in The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry and we really wanted to know more about her.

This is a pretty powerful, gripping story in its own right. You don't need to have read Harold Fry's novel, but we personally think that you would get so much more enjoyment from it if you have read The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, as a lot of the same parts are there, only from a completely different perspective. You will find new dimensions of the story and it will also cause you to view certain events with a completely different outlook.

Rachel Joyce is a brilliant story-teller and this deserves to be a Book of the Month.
