The long-awaited sequel to the international bestseller PS, I Love You!
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…

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
We had always not-so-secretly hoped Cecelia Ahern might be tempted into a PS, I Love You sequel. Quite rightly, the bestselling Irish author waited and waited until she felt the right story presented itself. Fifteen years later, we think she’s found the perfect way to continue Holly Kennedy’s story. The power in Postscript comes from its unvarnished honesty. We rejoin Holly eight years after Gerry’s final letter has been delivered and find her grief has evolved into something quite complex. “I outlived my husband and now I’ve outgrown him,” Ahern writes. In Holly she presents a powerful, and at times, devastating study in loss and acceptance which entirely legitimises Holly’s initial reticence to engage with a PS, I Love You club that has been inspired by her and Gerry’s story. The members of the group are all preparing to succumb to terminal illness and quickly become leading characters themselves. Ahern captures their plights and personalities quite beautifully. This is a gorgeous book.

Decent book but lots of un-needed paragraphs! Easy to skip over.
Loved catching up on Holly seven years later and enjoyed how the club came to be and the new characters- very touching!
I did cry lots!!
Beautiful next part of Holly and Gerry’s story.
I read PS I love you years ago and couldn’t put it down. This follow up was exactly the same for me, I had to keep reading. A beautiful next chapter in the journey of Holly, I would recommend a big stockpile of tissues though!
