Description

When Queenie Hennessy discovers that Harold Fry is walking the length of England to save her, and all she has to do is wait, she is shocked. Her note had explained she was dying. How can she wait? A new volunteer at the hospice suggests that Queenie should write again; only this time she must tell Harold everything. In confessing to secrets she has hidden for 20 years, she will find atonement for the past. As the volunteer points out, ‘Even though you’ve done your travelling, you’re starting a new journey, too.’

Queenie thought her first letter would be the end of the story. She was wrong. It was the beginning.Told in simple, emotionally-honest prose, with a mischievous bite, this is a novel about the journey we all must take to learn who we are; it is about loving and letting go. And most of all it is about finding joy in unexpected places and at times we least expect.

Excellent sequel to Harold Fry

This is NOT an action thriller it is a quiet English book about quiet British people making their way in life (and death) - at times it is very sad but also has many good one liners from the characters in the Hospice.

A lovely narration really helps this be a good listen.

You probably want to listen to Harold Fry by the same author first but that isn't necessary.

A worthy companion for "Harold Fry"

What did you love best about The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy?

This was one of those beautiful, gentle listens that was a pure pleasure from start to finish. Rachel Joyce's writing style is very pleasing and Celia Imrie's narration is superb.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I already loved Harold, and this book lets the reader fall in love with Queenie.

Which scene was your favorite?

I enjoyed the whole book, so there is no one particular scene.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did find myself listening to it as often as possible.

Any additional comments?

Although this book stands up by itself, I would recommend reading "The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry" first. That audiobook is narrated by Jim Broadbent and it's wonderful.

A Quietly Beautiful Story

What did you love best about The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy?

This book brought me to a special place; a quiet hospice where people learn to live before they die. Queenie Hennessy, the woman many readers will have previously encountered as the woman Harold Fry sets out to visit on his walk across England, tells the story of their relationship from her perspective. She is a beautiful, realistic character who tells her story as she awaits the visit of the man she has quietly loved for most of her life.

What did you like best about this story?

The story is a parallel companion to that of Harold Fry's. The author notes specifically that it is neither a sequel nor a prequel. And she is right. I honestly did not want this tale to end. There were many times I waited in my car when I got to my destination just to hear a bit more. The writing was lovely and the narrator's voice clearly differentiated between the various characters and time frames. It is one of my all time favorite audible books.

A mellow story with a wonderful ending!

Do listen all to the end. The ending makes the book in my opinion. A good listen!

langatmig

Die Geschichte war sehr langatmig! Ich habe oft überlegt, abzubrechen. Hab dann doch bis zum Ende gehört, aber ich hätte nicht viel verpasst, wenn ich das nicht getan hätte.

A beautiful exploration of life, grief, love and sadness

I loved the softness of the spoken word and attention to detail in the observations.
