Reviews
Our book group had previously read The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, which we felt was essential to get the most out of this book. It tells the story of a woman who falls in love with a man she meets at work, although he has no knowledge of this, and her fantasies about what life might be like if he were not married to someone else. She writes to tell him that she is dying of cancer and is persuaded by one of the nuns in the hospice to tell him the whole truth of her feelings for him. The overall feeling was that this book felt somewhat contrived, making use of the author's personal experiences whilst not necessarily creating a satisfactory narrative. Queenie comes across as an intelligent woman whose life could have been so much more fruitful than it was with many missed opportunities. The average score was 7/10.
