Book Review: Postscript by Cecelia Ahern

Synopsis

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…

We don’t often remember how we meet, we mostly remember how we part. – Cecelia Ahern – Postscript

My Review:

WOW!!!!! Grab your tissues!!!! This book will get to the core of you.

Holly, is faced with the letters her late husband Gerry left behind after his death seven years ago. She finally opens up about coping with his death, through his letters. Word spreads and she’s asked to assist a group of people who were inspired by Gerry’s letters and would like to do the same.

Holly is taken back to her time with Gerry, she relives certain moments, certain memories, it’s as if Gerry has returned to her.

Forced to make decisions on her own, Holly, helps this group called the P.S I Love You Club. She assists them with their wishes of leaving something behind for their loved ones.

Beautifully written, Cecelia Ahern made me think about life and how short it is. It took me back to my own experience with the death of loved ones and made me open to the changes made in my life. It’s a truly inspiring story and definitely one of my favourites for 2019.

Humans possess insatiable longings for wealth, status, and power, but are hungry, most of all, for love.
