Sixteen years after Cecelia Ahern’s bestselling phenomenon PS, I Love You captured the hearts of millions, the long-awaited sequel follows Holly as she helps strangers leave their own messages behind for loved ones.
Seven years after her husband’s death — six since she read his final letter — Holly Kennedy has moved on with her life. When Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — to revisit the messages Gerry wrote before his death to read after his passing — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds.
But after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones. Suddenly, Holly finds herself drawn back into a world she’s worked tirelessly to leave behind — but one that leads her on another incredible, life-affirming journey.
With her trademark blend of romance, humor, and bittersweet life lessons, Postscript is the perfect follow-up to Ahern’s beloved first novel.
Sensitive, pensive, and emotionally heart wrenching!
In this absorbing sequel in the P.S. I Love You series, Postscript, we head back into the life of Holly Kennedy seven years after the death of her husband Gerry when a guest spot on a podcast inadvertently upheaves her life and causes tears to be shed, lives to be remembered and celebrated, friendships old and new to be savoured, and love to be forged and shared.
The writing is skillful and seamless. The characters are well-drawn, genuine, and kind. And the plot is the perfect blend of hope, heart, humour, drama, and palpable emotion.
Postscript is, ultimately, a story about life, love, heartbreak, grief, friendship, family, and moving on. It’s an immersive, insightful, touching tale that once again showcases Ahern’s incredible, innate ability to delve into all the psychological and emotional entanglements associated with loss and weave them into a story you can’t put down. It will make you laugh, it will make you cry, and it will remind you that life is too short and the words “I Love You” can never be said enough.
