6 years after the final letter Holly is in a new relationship with a man named Gabriel, and she s planning a move Now, at the request of her sister, Ciara, she s agreed to share her story about Gerry s letters via a radio podcast discussing grief Once aired, people want to knowabout the contents of every letter and how Holly coped Why They want to write their own letters to their loved ones before they leave this earth This conjures up the past which Holly has strived to put behind her, but could it be the exact thing she needs to truly heal You never know what to expect with sequels, but this book turned out to be so good Once again, I fell in love with the writing beginning with the epilogue and pretty much devoured the book It was wonderful reading about all the characters from the first book again and seeing how their lives have progressed Not only that, new characters in the story make it incredibly emotional, and once again the author has done a beautiful job adding in the perfect mix of emotions here The topics were thought provoking as well, leaving me to contemplate what we can learn from others who ve had to rebuild their lives after loss, and also the healing power that comes from the people around us Something fans of the first book will appreciate is that parts of the time Holly and Gerry spent together previously unshared are brought out in this book, continuing their story, even though Holly s moved on Holly reminisces on some of the plans they had before Gerry got sick and also what it was like letting him go in his final days She s constantly reflecting throughout the book and I loved that This book is very much a continuation of her journey, but also shares the journeys of others who are preparing to leave their loved ones behind Postscript is perfectly set up to begin as a stand alone for those who haven t read the first book, although I would highly recommend starting with the first if you can, because there s so much you ll miss out on if you don t From the very beginning, to the beautiful, surprising end, Postscript had me captivated If you re a PS, I love you fan, don t miss this one 4.5 stars Sensitive, pensive, and emotionally

losing a loved one but is she up to it Does she want to revisit all these feelings I enjoyed taking this journey with Holly again She has changed, she has grown I must admit I was not a fan of her new

the story, since I really liked her in P.S and even think she should have her own spin off novel I felt like Daniel should have been reintroduced somehow, as well Harry Connick Jr played him in the movie I liked the idea of the P.S I Love You club and how Holly was resisting getting involved but kept getting pulled into the fray I found myself caring about the people in the club, especially Ginika However, I felt like one of them didn t get as much closure I had a feeling of where one aspect of the story was going and was right , but the rest of it was surprising.This was a sweet story overall and it gives new insight about grief.Movie casting suggestions, since I wasn t fond of the P.S I Love You movie casting Holly Hayley AtwellDenise Rebecca HallCiara Jessica De GouwSharon Jodie

decade I was worried that book two would sully the good memories I have of book one, I was worried it would disappoint, it did none of these things.Holly was seven years down the line from Gerry s death, living her life, happy, in a relationship and officially in a different phase of her life from when she recceived the original letters I wondered where Cecelia Ahern would take us, without harping back to the experiences of the first book too much but Gerry s letters were used for good, to empower others.What I liked about Holly in this book was that she was still a bit of a hot mess She didn t have it all together, even after all this time, showing this was just a personality trait What I also loved reading about was Holly s grief for Gerry and the life she lost The grief that shone through was dulled down but with occasional acuteness and this seemed real.The quest that Holly went on alongside others in her PS I Love You club was a journey I had my reservations about it just like her boyfriend, friends and family but I was won around by those characters of Bert, Genika and Jewel especially I made it to 88% rather smugly thinking that I ve not cried, I wont now and then proceeded to sob twice before the endultimately, it s all anyone wants Not to get lost, or left behind, not to be forgotten, to always be a part of the moments they know they ll miss To leave their stamp To be remembered.Cecelia Ahern wrote about the journey towards death and the grief that ensues with sensitivity and tangibility She also wrote it in an uplifting style She connected me to the characters and narratives with skill and affection I am so glad that this second instalment came along and made it seem as though no years had passed since the last book.Thank you Harper Collins for the early review copy.This review can be found on A Take From Two Cities Book Blog here
