My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Inspiring from start to finish, this book had me rooting for the characters at every juncture. Whenever I would go to the mailbox, I would think of Harold and how his intent to post a letter became a 600 mile journey. He sets out to save his friend, but ends up saving his marriage and changing his life. I think I was even jealous of Harold. I was captivated by the idea of taking off on a whim as he did and accomplishing the impossible despite all odds. He wasn’t trying to be heroic, nor was he. He was just an old man trying to find redemption and purpose. I felt privileged to have taken the journey with him. A worthy read!
