POSTSCRIPT was the sequel I never thought I needed Let s face it, PS I Love You finished in a good place and so it has existed for over a decade I was worried that book two would sully the good memories I have of book one, I was worried it would disappoint, it did none of these things.Holly was seven years down the line from Gerry s death, living her life, happy, in a relationship and officially in a different phase of her life from when she recceived the original letters I wondered where Cecelia Ahern would take us, without harping back to the experiences of the first book too much but Gerry s letters were used for good, to empower others.What I liked about Holly in this book was that she was still a bit of a hot mess She didn t have it all together, even after all this time, showing this was just a personality trait What I also loved reading about was Holly s grief for Gerry and the life she lost The grief that shone through was dulled down but with occasional acuteness and this seemed real.The quest that Holly went on alongside others in her PS I Love You club was a journey I had my reservations about it just like her boyfriend, friends and family but I was won around by those characters of Bert, Genika and Jewel especially I made it to 88% rather smugly thinking that I ve not cried, I wont now and then proceeded to sob twice before the endultimately, it s all anyone wants Not to get lost, or left behind, not to be forgotten, to always be a part of the moments they know they ll miss To leave their stamp To be remembered.Cecelia Ahern wrote about the journey towards death and the grief that ensues with sensitivity and tangibility She also wrote it in an uplifting style She connected me to the characters and narratives with skill and affection I am so glad that this second instalment came along and made it seem as though no years had passed since the last book.Thank you Harper Collins for the early review copy.This review can

PS I Love You, immersing us once again in the life of 37 year old Holly Kennedy seven years on since the loss of her beloved husband, Gerry, from cancer at the too young age of 30 She has established a new life with tree man, Gabriel, and is working at her sister, Ciara s second hand vintage shop, Magpie, and still close to her friends, Sharon and Denise Despite misgivings, she has agreed to support Ciara by taking part in her podcast on grief and loss, and talking about her experience of losing Gerry and the letters he left behind for her The huge response she gets makes her deeply uncomfortable When a new group sets itself up as the PS I Love You Club and asks for her help, Holly s instinct is to refuse, it has taken so much out of her to find the strength to survive Gerry s loss, and she is reluctant to revisit and let Gerry once again consume a big part of her life.However, she finds herself drawn into the club after meeting its members, a diverse group of characters led by Joy after the death of Angela, seeking her input into their very own versions of PS I love you letters Her family are there to support her, despite their reservations, although Gabriel s opposition to her involvement isintractable Gabriel s dream has always been to reconnect with his daughter, Ava, who lives her mother, Kate, and has shunned his efforts to have her in his life Holly has finally engaged in the process of selling her and Gerry s starter home and move in with Gabriel As Ava s life becomestroubled, and her relationship with her mother deteriorates, she at long last turns to Gabriel Gabriel is overjoyed but it poses some challenges to the life he and Holly had planned As Holly engages with the club, she finds herself getting closer to them, particularly the young Ginika, and her baby, Jewel, as she takes on the task of teaching Ginika to read and write.Holly finds she getsback from the club than she could ever have envisaged, not to mention the gift of the friendships that develop She finds revisiting her past with Gerry proves to be arewarding experience than she expected as she becomes aware that she is now a different person from the one Gerry knew, because of his loss The stories of the challenges faced by the club members and Holly herself show that our most heartbreaking losses have the potential to shape stronger versions of ourselves and build a new and better sense of who we are Ahern writes with humanity and compassion on the poignant themes of grief and loss, the challenges of facing our own mortality, preparing for death, whilst providing glimpses of light and hope in the process This is a wonderful read that I think so many readers will enjoy, and a pleasure to get reacquainted with Holly in this new phase of her life Many

letter Holly is in a new relationship with a man named Gabriel, and she s planning a move Now, at the request of her sister, Ciara, she s agreed to share her story about Gerry s letters via a radio podcast discussing grief Once aired, people want to knowabout the contents of every letter and how Holly coped Why They want to write their own letters to their loved ones before they leave this earth This conjures up the past which Holly has strived to put behind her, but could it be the exact thing she needs to truly heal You never know what to expect with sequels, but this book turned out to be so good Once again, I fell in love with the writing beginning with the epilogue and pretty much devoured the book It was wonderful reading about all the characters from the first book again and seeing how their lives have progressed Not only that, new characters in the story make it incredibly emotional, and once again the author has done a beautiful job adding in the perfect mix of emotions here The topics were thought provoking as well, leaving me to contemplate what we can learn from others who ve had to rebuild their lives after loss, and also the healing power that comes from the people around us Something fans of the first book will appreciate is that parts of the time Holly and Gerry spent together previously unshared are brought out in this book, continuing their story, even though Holly s moved on Holly reminisces on some of the plans they had before Gerry got sick and also what it was like letting him go in his final days She s constantly reflecting throughout the book and I loved that This book is very much a continuation of her journey, but also shares the journeys of others who are preparing to leave their loved ones behind Postscript is perfectly set up to begin as a stand alone for those who haven t read the first book, although I would highly recommend starting with the first if you can, because there s so much you ll miss out on if you don t From the very beginning, to the beautiful, surprising end, Postscript had me captivated If you re a PS, I love you fan, don t miss this one 4.5 stars Excuse me while I ugly cry I knew this book would be emotional although the first book was muchso for me I was so pleasantly shocked to see a sequel to P.S I Love You that I was over the moon excited when I got approved for this ARC I admit I was a bit hesitant to start as I didn t know if I could take the emotions that it would bring out Thankfully the first one was wayemotional for me I did tear up a couple of times but it was not the anguish that I felt with the first book Excuse me while I ugly cry I knew this book would be emotional although the first book was muchso for me I was so pleasantly shocked to see a sequel to P.S I Love You that I was over the moon excited when I got approved for this ARC I admit I was a bit hesitant to start as I didn t know if I could take the emotions that it would bring out Thankfully the first one was wayemotional for me I did tear up a couple of times but it was not the anguish that I felt with the first book Not to worry, if you have not read the first book, this can totally be read as a stand alone The author clues you in to the content of the last book Honestly I couldn t remember all the details of the first book since it was like well umm 15 years ago that I had read it What I did remember is that it was about Holly dealing with Gerry s death and the letters he left her to open each month OMGGG heartbreaking Anyways Holly is finally starting to heal and move on in this book She is finding her way and faced with a propositionone that could help others deal with losing a loved one but is she up to it Does she want to revisit all these feelings I enjoyed taking this journey with Holly again She has changed, she has grown I must admit I was not a fan of her new man Why I am not sure I can see why he would feel the way he does butyah not a fan of him though Anyways I enjoyed this book even though it was sad at points.The first book is a must I never did get a chance to review it as I don t know if Goodreads was even around that long ago It seems like a lifetime ago Thank you to the author for letting us see that Holly is on the mend even though it is still a struggle each day as it is with anyone that has lost a loved one It doesn t really get easier, you just have to learn how to cope.Thank you so very much to Grand Central Publishing for this ARC
