Review: Postscript



Sixteen years after Cecelia Ahern’s bestselling phenomenon PS, I Love You captured the hearts of millions, the long-awaited sequel follows Holly as she helps strangers leave their own messages behind for loved ones.

Seven years after her husband’s death — six since she read his final letter — Holly Kennedy has moved on with her life. When Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — to revisit the messages Gerry wrote before his death to read after his passing — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds.

But after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones. Suddenly, Holly finds herself drawn back into a world she’s worked tirelessly to leave behind — but one that leads her on another incredible, life-affirming journey.

With her trademark blend of romance, humor, and bittersweet life lessons, Postscript is the perfect follow-up to Ahern’s beloved first novel.

Rating: 5-stars


Postscript by Cecelia Ahern is the most heartfelt novel I have read in awhile. Books that are similar to this read would be The Fault in Our Stars and The Boy in the Stripe Pajamas. The emotional journey in this tale was just as powerful as these other novels that I have mentioned. It made me cry the entire time. The character and her sad journey could be felt on every page. I easily connected with her. Losing a loved one changed our lives forever. It’s never the same afterwards. This particular woman receives letters from her loved one after he passes away. It’s his way of guiding her through this tough ride known as grief. It helps her and in turn she helps others who face the same journey she had. This was my first novel I have read by Cecelia Ahern and I look forward to reading more by her in the future. Postscript is beautiful told and written.
