The love song of Miss Queenie Hennessy by Rachel Joyce

QueenieI finally found time to catch up with this, the companion volume, to Joyce’s first book – the Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry.

The news that after 20 years she is to be reunited with Harold comes as a great shock to Queenie. As she lies in her hospice bed – unsure whether she’ll live to meet Harold – Sister Mary Inconnu suggests that Queenie tell her story in a letter. So begins the tale of Queenie’s love for Harold and the circumstances that led to her leaving brewery and heading north. This was such a sad, sad tale, but full of comical bits too – including the wonderful Finty – and the ending … well… you’ll just have to read it to find out what happens.  Brilliant!
