A pilgrim is a traveler who is on a journey to a holy placeAnd whether that holy place has an actual physical location like a Mecca or a Jerusalem or is still yet to be determined by the traveler “your sacred space is where you can find yourself again and again” Joseph CampbellThe pilgrim in this story Harold Fry may be the unlikeliest pilgrim of all He's a 65 year old recent retiree who hasn't seen his son or slept in the same room as his wife in twenty years Harold has “made a mess of being a husband father and friend He had even made a mess of being a son It wasn't simply that he had betrayed ueenie his co worker and friend and that his parents did not want him It wasn't simply that he had made a mess of everything with his wife and son It was rather that he had passed through life and left no impression He meant nothing”At the novel's beginning Harold receives a letter from ueenie Hennessy a former co worker In this letter ueenie reveals that she is in a hospice in Northern England at the border of Scotland and that she is dying of a terminal cancer She simply wanted to thank him for his friendship and bid him farewellAnd though Harold is a man who wouldn't be described as either spiritual or spontaneous he is provoked to start the unlikeliest pilgrimage to ueenie Hennessey's hospice on the other side of England As readers we don't understand why he wants to do this and we don't understand how he's going to succeed but nonetheless he starts walking Not driving WalkingAnd it turns out “life was very different when you walked through it” Harold learns pretty uickly that “you saw even than the land when you got out of the car and used your feet”He's right It is through this trek this unlikely pilgrimage that we come to know him to see him We come to know his wife Maureen back at the house tooAnd we the readers take this holy trek tooThis is a true pilgrimage painful poignant and humorous And the author Rachel Joyce punched her fist through my rib cage and pulled my heart out through the shards of bone and whispered ever so sweetly “You'll suffer on this journey too”Through her writing I became a follower of Harold's one of the lost ones who joined him I wanted him to explain things to me like can you fix a marriage once it's been shattered and how do you win back the love of a grown child who has turned his face away from yours and what after all is the true meaning of our existenceBut Harold doesn't have any answers than you or I he can only contribute that “not knowing was the biggest truth and you had to stay with that”And ueenie can only contribute that she “had touched life played with it a little but it is a slippery bugger and finally we must close the door and leave it behind”Ouch you guys and DANG ITI followed Harold to the very end of this story which is also a beginning and I sobbed like a baby tooThis book is a gift and I received it We have not even to risk the adventure alone The heroes of all time have gone before us The labyrinth is thoroughly known We have only to follow the thread of the hero's path and where we had thought to find an abomination we shall find a God And where we had thought to slay another we shall slay ourselves Where we had thought to travel outward we shall come to the center of our own existence And where we had thought to be alone we shall be with all the worldJoseph Campbell
