The Unlikely Pilgrimage Of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce - our book club choice for August. Another poignant and uplifting book which celebrates the extra-ordinariness of ordinary people. I loved it!
The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce. A joy of a book. Harold's walk, from one end of the country to the other, seemed at first like a gimmick - but the story is so much more than that. As the tale unravels, you really grow to care about the people involved, especially Harold and his wife Maureen. And it's far from being a twee and sentimental tale - there are many truths in its pages, some of them harsh, and a heartbreaking twist too. I loved it.
Thoroughly enjoyed this & want to visit Highgate Cemetery now!

Her Fearful Symmetry - Audrey Niffenegger
Oh what a treat if you haven't read this one yet. The story is set vividly in a tormented Barcelona in the decades after the spanish civil war. A young boy is given access to the Cementary of Lost Books and made guardian of one of it's books. The book he chooses is a riddle, it's author a mystery and the plot twists and turns. It's a ghost story, a love story; deep, dark and baroque. All you need is a dark and stormy night, a freshly brewed cup of tea and you're all set for a really good read.

The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon - one of my favorites. This is everything a great book should be. It's unpredictable with an amazing story line.
I SEE DEAD BOOKS!!! A book that is well worth reading to the end! It was the initial synop that hooked me and now I am reading all his books. My sisters have already done so.
I thoroughly enjoyed this - thanks Sue Nicholson for recommending it
