Harper Collins also announced the new book, "HarperCollins are delighted to announce the publication of Postscript by Cecelia Ahern, the much longed-for sequel to the international bestseller PS, I Love You, on 19th September 2019. Publishing Director Lynne Drew first acquired Cecelia Ahern in 2003. Her first novel, PS, I Love You, went on to become a huge #1 bestseller in Ireland and the UK and was picked for the inaugural Richard and Judy Book Club, as well as becoming a New York Times bestseller. It was made into a major film starring Hilary Swank and Gerard Butler."
"From that phenomenal launch, Ahern has gone on to become one of HarperCollins’ biggest authors.

And well, Cecilia has revealed that the novel will be a PS to the PS in PS I love You and will carry on the journey of Holly! "I’m very excited to share the news that I’ve written the sequel to PS, I Love You. It’s been fifteen years since I wrote my debut novel and I relished the challenge of revisiting the world of Holly seven years after her husband’s death. A deeply emotional project for me, Postscript is the PS to my PS and while it is a sequel, it is also a story that stands alone about living a purposeful life in the face of illness, grief, and loss. I hope that new readers and PS, I Love You fans alike will embrace Holly’s new journey," she wrote.
The official synopsis of the sequel is out as well and we cannot wait to dive into the book while crying simultaneously. "When Holly Kennedy is approached by a group calling themselves the PS, I Love You Club, her safe existence is turned on its head. Inspired by hearing about her late husband Gerry’s letters, the club wants Holly to help them with their own parting messages for their loved ones to discover after they’re gone. Holly is sure of one thing – no way is she being dragged back to the grief she has left behind. It’s taken seven years to reinvent herself, and she’s ready to move on with her life. But Holly comes to realize that when you love someone, there’s always one more thing to say…" Who's excited?!
