The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce

Total Stars out of 5: 4

The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry is a very surprising book. It may appear a little comical on the surface but we all agreed it was a very moving book.

At first the journey is meandering and the public getting involved and taking over Harold’s pilgrimage is really annoying, very realistic, but still annoying.

It is gripping emotionally and painful in places. Showing you how memories skew with time and you have to strip each layer away to get to the truth of what happened. Harold and his wife Maureen discovered that being separated from each other by distance reminded them how much they missed each other.

It is ultimately a journey of healing, for Harold, Maureen and lots of people that meet them along the way. The ending was exceptionally honest and satisfying.

Bream Library honoured with a ROYAL visit!!

Bream Village has sure been in the papers this week! 🙂

We were all abuzz waiting for the Duchess of Cornwall to arrive today to officially reopen the Children’s Library.

It was such an exciting day, especially for the children over the road at Bream Primary waving their flags and cheering.

Her Royal Highness met the member of the Lego Build Club and read them a story in our beautiful children’s library, she was so gracious and lovely, speaking to so many and meeting parents, volunteers and making us all feel rather special.

Some lovely pictures can be seen at these links:
