A novel about holding on letting go and learning to love againNow in paperback the endearing novel that captured readers' hearts and introduced a fresh new voice in women's fiction Cecelia Ahern Holly couldn't live without her husband Gerry until the day she had to They were the PS I Love You is a beautiful story that deals with love and bereavement Holly has recently lost the love of her life Gerry to a brain tumor Now widowed at a young age she struggles to get her life back together Holly’s mother explains that before Gerry died he wrote a series of notes to help encourage her to get back to living life without him Over the course of the year she opens these messages PS I promised a list so here it is The following envelopes must be opened exactly when labeled and must be obeyed And remember I am looking out for you so I will knowFor me it’s so easy to resonate with Holly I haven’t experienced losing a husband but if this happened to me it would be a complete life altering event The anguish loneliness and heartbreak would be too much to bear It’s nearly impossible for Holly to get back on her feet andthe author did an amazing job describing the emotions and fears a grieving person deals with after lossDuring Holly’s healing journey she also reflects on their relationship and some of the things she wishes she’d done differently These reminiscing bits were what sparked much of my emotion and morphed me into an emotional bawl bag Luckily Holly has strong support from family and friends but even those relationships have challenges ahead Holly’s blood boiled and as she spoke her voice shook with rage “And you wonder why I don’t go out with you Because of stupid insensitive remarks like that Did you ever think for one moment that it might be hard for me? The fact that all you talk about are your bloody wedding arrangements and how happy you are and how excited you are and how you can’t wait to spend the rest of your life with Tom in wedded bliss In case you hadn’t noticed Denise I didn’t get that chance because my husband died But I am very happy for you really I am”This is my second reading I decided to revisit the book after winning a copy of the seuel Postscript In all honesty there was emotion during this second reading; however it felt like the book dragged in parts and some of the emotion was lost for me There were some changes I appreciated in the film location the removal or changing of some characters how Holly and Gerry meet and other plot changes Perhaps the biggest difference of all between the two is Gerry; he’s brought to life in the movie Regardless in the end there’s just no comparison to the book which has so much detail with Holly’s pain challenges and struggles to finding a new normal In addition the book has much development on the family some of which aren’t in the movie and supporting characters With that said I enjoyed both the book and movie for what they are 4
