When Harold Fry nips out one morning to post a letter, leaving his wife hoovering upstairs, he has idea that he is about to walk from one end of the country to the other.

The odyssey of a simple man, original, subtle and touching. (Claire Tomalin). From the moment I met Harold Fry, I didn't want to leave him. Impossible to put down. (Erica Wagner, The Times ).
