Romance novel fans are truly in for a treat with the announcement of the upcoming sequel of best-selling novel PS, I Love You. International best-selling author, Cecelia Ahern took to Twitter to let the world in on her little secret:
🚨 I have BIG NEWS! 🚨— Cecelia Ahern (@Cecelia_Ahern) March 11, 2019
I’ve written the sequel to PS I LOVE YOU – titled POSTSCRIPT.
POSTSCRIPT will be published September 19th in the UK & Ireland. I hope you’ll welcome back Holly… & Gerry…& that reading it will be as emotional for you as it was for me. 💙#Postscript pic.twitter.com/ldAqLfFpmv
The Dublin-born author quickly rose to fame in 2004 with her debut novel, PS I Love You — a love story about a widow who finds a series of letters from her late husband written to her before his death. With so much success surrounding the book’s release, the novel was turned into a movie three years later starring Hilary Swank and Gerald Butler, which was also highly successful.
Since her initial success with fan favorite, PS, Ahern was written 15 other novels and sold over 25 million copies of her books internationally— in 40 countries and 30 different languages.
“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,” Ahern shared with
“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
andloss. I hope that new readers and PS, I Love You fans alike will embrace Holly’s new journey.”
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…Cecelia Ahern, Postscript
P.S. — don’t run to your nearest Barnes & Noble just yet. While Postscript will be released in the U.K. on September 19, 2019, the U.S. won’t be graced with the highly-anticipated novel until April 2020. From the looks of the synopsis, this gives us all ample time to prepare as this one looks like another tearjerker, too.
