What are you reading? – Dr. Power

Interview conducted by Jake Taber


What they are reading/have recently read?

I’ve recently read “The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry” by Rachel Joyce.

What it’s about?

After Harold Fry learns that a very good friend whom he hasn’t seen in a long time is about to die, he decides to do something about it. Harold takes an unexpected walk, and along the way we learn a lot about him, his wife, his son, and ourselves.

What did you like about it?

This book actually encourages me to look at the ordinary events of day-to-day life in a new and different way. I don’t want to give too much away, in case you decide to read it, but we are all on a pilgrimage of one sort or another, aren’t we? Most of the time, though, we aren’t aware of it.

Would they recommend it?

Dr. Churchward recommended “The Unlikely Pilgrimage” to me, and I am happy to follow his lead!
