*Mail on Sunday*

Joyce is a fearless explorer of emotional landscape; Maureen's pilgrimage north becomes
a moving account of healing and acceptance.
*Sunday Times*

Exquisite and beautifully crafted
*Daily Mail*

A beautiful novella ... with compassion and tenderness ... the novel's conclusion is deeply moving and life-affirming.

Very rarely, there is a writer who can touch the deepest and most hidden parts of the soul, by using the everyday matter of our daily lives to reveal the sacred that always surrounds us. This writer is Rachel Joyce, and her trilogy starting with The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, then The Love Song of Queenie Hennessy and finally Maureen Fry and the Angel of the North does just that, as well as delighting by her assured story-telling. To read her work is to think at first you are being invited to a perfect and delicious afternoon tea - then realise that you are intimate communion with what it means to be human: to suffer, to love, and to be understood. There is beauty, and the reason for art.
