The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy
By Rachel Joyce
If you liked the Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry then you will enjoy this book. Whilst Harold walked hundreds of miles to complete his journey, Queenie’s journey is no less meaningful but is done as she lies in her hospice bed.
The author calls it a companion book to the Harold Fry book not a sequel “what I have written is a book that sits alongside “Harold Fry’. They really should come that way – her in the passenger seat, him in the driving seat. Side by side, I would call this book a companion.”
I feel that although you don’t have to have read “Harold Fry” to enjoy this book, you will enjoy it more if you have read it – and not that long ago if your memory is anything like mine!
It is quite sad and poignant at times but a lovely read.
