The Harold Fry and Queenie Hennessy 2-book Bundle: Includes: The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry and The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy by Rachel JoyceTwo beloved novels in one volume!
THE UNLIKELY PILGRIMAGE OF HAROLD FRY
Recently retired, sweet, emotionally numb Harold Fry is jolted out of his passivity by a letter from Queenie Hennessy, an old friend, who he hasnt heard from in twenty years. She has written to say she is in hospice and wanted to say goodbye. Leaving his tense, bitter wife Maureen to her chores, Harold intends a quick walk to the corner mailbox to post his reply but instead, inspired by a chance encounter, he becomes convinced he must deliver his message in person to Queenie--who is 600 miles away--because as long as he keeps walking, Harold believes that Queenie will not die. So without hiking boots, rain gear, map or cell phone, one of the most endearing characters in current fiction begins his unlikely pilgrimage across the English countryside. Along the way, strangers stir up memories--flashbacks, often painful, from when his marriage was filled with promise and then not, of his inadequacy as a father, and of his shortcomings as a husband. Ironically, his wife Maureen, shocked by her husbands sudden absence, begins to long for his presence. Is it possible for Harold and Maureen to bridge the distance between them? And will Queenie be alive to see Harold arrive at her door?
THE LOVE SONG OF MISS QUEENIE HENNESSY
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 youve done your travelling, youre starting a new journey too.
Queenie thought her first letter would be the end of the story. She was wrong. It was the beginning.
Hey, our system thinks you're a bot.
Way before Rainbow , Kesha was one of the best things about radio-made pop music. As is often the case with mainstream artists, you have to dig into deep cuts to come to appreciate what they have to say. She molded those feelings of misery and anger into a synth-soaked mid-tempo tear-jerker, not unlike much of her early work, but she lets her heart lead the way across a scratchy and cathartic thrill ride. All men that date me have to know that their name may end up in a pop song. The keyboard is cutting, and the beat takes on the very life-like form of a human heartbeat, pounding underneath until the production is shredded apart like an article of cherished clothing.
May 17, Welcome to Throwback Thursday, a weekly series showcasing an album, single, music video or performance of a bygone era and its personal and/or cultural significance. So, in the spirit of celebrating strong, talented women, we have “The Harold Song,” a standout from Kesha’s.

The Harold Song // Kesha
It is a very vulnerable and different sounding song for her. I love it. - It's not that innocent.
