The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry - I didn't even have to think before giving this five stars. It is possibly one of the best books I've read in a long time. I won't try to fool you into thinking that it is necessarily the quality of the book, but admit that it is most certainly the timing of the reading for myself.

It just happens to exactly mirror all my feelings at the moment. In grieving for the loss of my husband, I constantly battle guilt that I probably don't deserve, many episodes of playing "what if," moments of spirituality and trying to talk myself into positive places. I struggle to understand why I can't bring him back when I want him so badly.

This is what this book is about. If one were to read it at any normal time in their life, they may think it a pleasant, light read, or find that it is just a book with wishy-washy sentiment that leaves them cold; but I will remember it.
