Heartbreaking, but absolutely beautiful!
Postscript by Cecelia Ahern
It’s been seven years since Holly Kennedy’s husband died – six since she read his final letter, urging Holly to find the courage to forge a new life.
She’s proud of all the ways in which she has grown and evolved. But when a group inspired by Gerry’s letters, calling themselves the PS, I Love You Club, approaches Holly asking for help, she finds herself drawn back into a world that she worked so hard to leave behind.
Reluctantly, Holly begins a relationship with the club, even as their friendship threatens to destroy the peace she believes she has achieved. As each of these people calls upon Holly to help them leave something meaningful behind for their loved ones, Holly will embark on a remarkable journey – one that will challenge her to ask whether embracing the future means betraying the past, and what it means to love someone forever…
This is the sequel to PS I Love You which you can read my review for here.
This book is just beautiful and the story is so moving that I had goosebumps throughout. Also I immediately gave it five stars as soon as it made me ugly cry…if a story can do that to me then it’s a winner for me!
Comparing it to PS I Love You, I will say I definitely preferred the sequel. I found there was so much more emotion in this one and I also loved that we got to see life between Holly & Gerry before he passed away, such as when they were at school together.
Whilst the premise of the PS I Love You club is utterly heartbreaking, as we follow these members leaving something behind to their loved ones, it isn’t all sadness. There are so many other messages to come out of this book, from hope, to moving on but never forgetting.
Honestly this book is just beautifully written and one I would love to read again despite making me cry!
Overall this will make you feel all the emotions and stay with you for a long time. Finally I couldn’t finish this review without mentioning Ginika…you will find out more about her if you read the book but her story is the one that made me ugly cry.
