Postscript by Cecelia Ahern

This is the second novel to P.S. I Love You. Yes this was made into a movie, I did not read the first novel nor watch the movie, but I did not need to have read the first book to be able to read and follow along with this second one. It was a good hearted read, a tear jerker at times, but it really makes you feel.

Holly lost her husband seven years ago, and although it still hurts and he is still often in her daily thoughts, she has moved on. She has a newer boyfriend, and works at her sisters shop. Life is going as well as it can after losing the love of your life, so young and quickly. Her sisters asks if she will be a guest on her podcast and discuss how Gerry left her the letters to read after his death.

She is hesitant in that it is personal, but it has been seven years and maybe it will help some. Relentlessly, she agrees and it opens up a can of worms she could have never imagined. People cling to this podcast and cannot seem to get enough. More people start entering the shop and Holly has now been asked to help others prepare things for their loved ones, for when their time comes.

Holly is terrified of this, how could she possibly relive what Gerry did, and help others at the same time. There is a group who are terminally ill, and after trying to put them off, she gives in to meet with them once. Mainly to get the main lady off her back, but what she finds is that she cannot tell these people no, and so begins her new adventure.

This helping of others brings lots of heartache, and stress and uncertainty but they all learn along the way, and Holly realizes that maybe this is her calling. This is what she is meant to do, and meanwhile it also makes her analyze the way she has still been clinging onto the past as well.

This is not my typical read, but the cover caught my eye and I was interested from that alone. I love letters, and feel they really are personable and often that is how love stayed alive during the war. Letters brought news, hope, wonder, interest, love, and the unknown of what the other persons personal thoughts were, as they put that ink to paper.

Thank you to Grand Central Publishing for the free book. I may not have read this one otherwise, and now I will need to read the first one to get the whole story. I am excited to see where this may go with Holly’s character, as I feel there are many more people she can help, and stories that can be written.
