Review

Praise for Rachel Joyce's "The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry"
"[A] gorgeously poignant novel of hope and transformation.""--O: The Oprah Magazine"
" "
"Joyce's beguiling debut is [a] modest-seeming story of 'ordinary' English lives that enthralls and moves you as it unfolds."--"People" (four stars)
""The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry" is not just a book about lost love. It is about all the wonderful everyday things Harold discovers through the mere process of putting one foot in front of the other."--Janet Maslin, "The New York Times"

Praise for "The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy"
"If you enjoyed Harold's odyssey, you will adore this book. A page into this tender tale and it is clearly the perfect companion piece to the original story of Harold Fry. . . . Rachel Joyce fleshes out the joyous woman who inspired his epic journey."--"Daily Express"
" "
"A beautiful story which will grip you, make you laugh and cry, uplift your spirit and leave you feeling profoundly grateful and changed by the reading experience . . . a wonderful book about loss, redemption and joy."--"Daily Mail"
" "
"Touching . . . [a] quiet, gentle, moving novel . . . Joyce's writing . . . has a simplicity that sings. She captures hope best of all."--"The Observer"

""The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry" is not just a book about lost love. It is about all the wonderful everyday things Harold discovers through the mere process of putting one foot in front of the other."--Janet Maslin, "The New York Times"

"In the end, this lovely book is full of joy. Much more than the story of a woman's enduring love for an ordinary, flawed man, it's an ode to messy, imperfect, glorious, unsung humanity. . . . [Queenie's] love song is for us. Thank you, Rachel Joyce."--"The Washington Post"
" "
"Joyce's writing at moments has a simplicity that sings. She captures hope best of all."--"The Guardian"
" "
"[A] deeply affecting novel . . . Culminating in a shattering revelation, [Queenie's] tale is funny, sad, hopeful: She's bound for death, but full of life."--"People"
" "
"Like "Harold Fry, Queenie" is delightful and dark. . . . But Joyce is so deft that when the book is over and you close the cover, the darkness fades. What sticks with you is the light of Queenie's unwavering love."--Minneapolis "Star Tribune"
" "
"[A] beguiling follow-up . . . In telling Queenie's side of the story, Joyce accomplishes the rare feat of endowing her continuing narrative with as much pathos and warmth, wisdom and poignancy as her debut. Harold was beloved by millions; Queenie will be, too."--"Booklist "(starred review)
"Joyce has a wonderfully evocative turn of phrase and like her other books this is a delightful read. . . . "Queenie" is an uplifting and moving companion to "Harold.""--"Daily Express"
" "
"Joyce nicely calls the book a companion rather than a sequel. But "The Love Song" is bolder than a retread of the same material from another angle. . . . After two such involving novels, readers are bound to wish for a third."--"The Telegraph"
" "
"[Joyce] manages to both add depth to an already strong work and build something new and beautiful upon it."--"The A.V. Club"
" "
"A wonderful read . . . It is not necessary to read Harold's story before reading Queenie's to enjoy this bittersweet novel, which is a pleasure in its own right. However, reading both will only serve to double that pleasure."--"The Independent"

In the end, this lovely book is full of joy. Much more than the story of a woman s enduring love for an ordinary, flawed man, it s an ode to messy, imperfect, glorious, unsung humanity. . . . [Queenie s] love song is for us. Thank you, Rachel Joyce. "The Washington Post"
Destined to change your world. One can t help but see life, and the end of it, differently after experiencing this novel. Full of wisdom and heart, it will overwhelm its readers with a deep sensitivity. " Bookreporter"
