We met Holly Kennedy and her husband Gerry in PS. I Love You. Gerry, knowing his death was coming soon, wrote a series of letters to Holly to read after he passed. But now it has been seven years since Gerry died, and six years since Holly read his final letter. Holly has worked incredibly hard to move past that time and place in her life, forging a new life, a new Holly.

Through a series of circumstances Holly learns of a group of people who have been so inspired by Gerry’s letters that they call themselves the PS, I Love You Club. All members of this club are suffering from an illness that will either claim their life one day, or impact their quality of life. They want Holly’s help to leave something meaningful behind for their loved ones. But Holly doesn’t know if she can embrace that part of her life again, the part of her life that was so full of anguish and pain. She has worked so hard to move past that point in her life – can she afford to be drawn back into the world of sickness and hurt, just to help some perfect strangers?

Almost against her own wishes, Holly meets with the club and slowly but surely finds herself helping these people, even when helping them throws her back into the past, affecting her current relationships and what she has worked so hard to achieve. Holly is left to ponder some large life questions: does moving on and embracing the future mean you are betraying your past? What does it mean to love someone forever?

This was the sequel I didn’t know I needed until I read it. Having read (and sobbed through) PS. I Love You many years ago, I wasn’t sure that a sequel was necessary. But seeing where our beloved characters have ended up, and meeting new characters to fall in love with was simply perfect. We learn even more about Holly and Gerry. Our hearts are broken, and then broken once again as we get new insights into their time together.

Cecelia Ahern is, as always, a delight to read. She grabs your emotions and masterfully tugs at them. The book is full of poignant moments that will stay with you long after turning the final page, encouraging you to think about your own life and loved ones. Ahern has created a wonderful testament to the importance of love in all forms, the reality of loss, and the power of the future. You’ll also want to keep the tissues close while reading, and go hug a loved one a little closer after finishing this gorgeous book.
