Reviews of : The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy by Rachel Joyce PDF Book
1st Review -This book, which was written as occurring simultaneously with Harold’s journey to Saint Bernadine’s Hospice at Berwick-upon-Tweed, was written from Queenie’s point of view; and when Queenie realized that her good-bye letter to Harold had inspired him to walk those hundreds of miles to see her in person, she was alarmed and frightened. Would she live long enough to see him again? Her tumor had, at this point, left her unable to speak. Plus, Queenie’s fear had roots in the secrets she had been keeping for more than two decades. She knew in her heart that Harold needed to hear the secrets she had guarded so closely. In fact, she had moved away and left her entire life behind to guard those secrets. That had left her isolated and the only comfort she had found was in a garden she had constructed by the sea. You don’t really need to read ‘The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry’ to understand and appreciate this book but I found that Queenie’s story adds so much more depth to the characters; so I would recommend reading Harold’s viewpoint first. I don’t want to give too much of the story away so as not to spoil either book but I can express how much I loved this story and all of its characters.
2nd Review about The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy PDF Book by Rachel Joyce – The hospice in which Queenie was spending her final days is a charming place.. not dreary or hopeless. In fact, the staff and patients seem as if they are a large family. The hospice is full of wonderful characters all simply living their lives one day at a time.. and savoring each day. There is Sister Lucy, a staff member, who is obsessed with jigsaw puzzles. There is always a puzzle under construction almost as if it has been placed there to encourage the patients.. after all, you don’t want to give up your life until you have finished your business and have placed everything in order. And then, there is Sister Mary Inconnu. She is encouraging and helping Queenie to put the secrets she wants to tell Harold to paper, one word at a time. There is Mr. Henderson, Barbara, Finty and the Pearly King… all splendid characters , full of life, meeting each day to work on the puzzle and coaching each other to ingest the horrible protein shakes which are purported to taste like “wet cardboard”. All of the patients are aware of Harold’s journey and in fact, are following him on Twitter, even tweeting their own words of encouragement.
