If you have not cried ‘ugly-cry’ either by reading Cecelia Ahern’s P.S I Love You or the movie starring Hillary Swank and Gerard Butler, then we don’t know what will! The international bestseller book about a widow who finds letters from her late husband set against the backdrop of Dublin, Ireland has every paraphernalia of a ‘climaxing’ love story. So, for the hardcore romantics, there is a box of good news because after 15 years since its first book release, P.S I Love You is getting a sequel!
Author Cecelia Ahern has announced on Twitter that she’s written a sequel to everyone’s favourite onion-cutter, P.S. I Love You. Ahern posted the words, “I have BIG NEWS! 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.”

Talking about the sequel Ahern said in a statement as per Entertainment Weekly, “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."
