Perfect by Rachel Joyce

I finished this book last week. I’m now an absolute fan of Rachel Joyce. She gets you on the first page and keeps your attention until the last. Thought provoking and touching this book is about the stories of Byron a young boy and Jim an Obsessive-compulsive middle aged man. Both stories of tragedy and loss. Worth a read.


The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy by Rachel Joyce

I finally finished this book, once I got into the story and I wasn’t distracted by other reads I was hooked. The story was a journey like the companion of this book The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry. I wish I had read them closer together because some of the meaning was lost in my memory. The book was about a lady who was in the process of dying and remembering her life. Each chapter a story of past or present as she confessed her truths. Absolving her sins and finding meaning along the way as she waited for Harold Fry. The ending had an interesting twist on reality. Definitely worth a read.
