Queenie Hennesssy is dying again.  It broke my heart 3 years ago when her impending death was featured in a book.  And now it's being presented again as told from her point of view.  I didn't think Rachel Joyce would have something strong in this second take on the same story.  I think, though, now that I have about 40 out of 366 pages left, that this is an amazing work.  The voice and phrasing are powerful and poignant. I very highly recommend "The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennesy." I think it was more pleasing to me than the book it follows up.  But I do think to fully get it you need to read "The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry" first.  Two different angles of one story.
