Publisher Comments:

The Notebook meets Bridget Jones's Diary in this enchanting, poignant, and witty first novel about moving on after loss. Some people wait their entire lives to find their soul mates, but not Holly and Gerry. High-school sweethearts, they felt like they had been together forever. They could finish each other's sentences, and even when they fought (like over who would get out of bed to turn off the light each night) they laughed. Holly didn't know where she'd be without Gerry. No one did. And that's how "The List" started...as a joke. If anything were to happen to Gerry, he'd have to leave Holly a list of things to do to make it through the day. The young couple then face the unimaginable: Gerry becomes desperately ill and then dies. Three months after his death, Holly emerges from her house to retrieve a mysterious package from her mother. When Holly opens it up, she finds that Gerry was true to his word. He's left her "The List." A letter for each month of the year following his death, each instructing Holly to do something to help her heal. Each note from Gerry to Holly is signed PS, I LOVE YOU. Surrounded by girlfriends with razor-sharp wits and a family that smothers, loves, and drives her crazy, Holly Kennedy is a modern-day heroine — wobbling, weaving, crying, and joking her way toward independence, and a new life of adventure, career, love, and friendship. From a fresh new voice in fiction, PS, I Love You is a tender, funny, unexpectedly romantic novel that readers will treasure in their hearts and minds long after closing the pages.

Review:

"A charming, heartfelt debut....Ahern herself might be all of 22 years old, but she has realistically captured the ups and downs of a woman whose life has fallen apart and how she picks herself back up and moves on, one step at a time." Booklist

Review:

"[Ahern] boasts a natural storytelling talent...resulting in a compelling tale sparked by an unusual premise." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

Two months after her soul mate's death, Holly receives a mysterious package. Gerry was true to his word — he's left her "the list," a letter for each of the ten months following his death, gently urging Holly to heal and to begin looking to the future.

Synopsis:

A novel about holding on, letting go, and learning to love again.

Now 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 kind of young couple who could finish each other's sentences. When Gerry succumbs to a terminal illness and dies, 30-year-old Holly is set adrift, unable to pick up the pieces. But with the help of a series of letters her husband left her before he died and a little nudging from an eccentric assortment of family and friends, she learns to laugh, overcome her fears, and discover a world she never knew existed.

The kind of enchanting novel with cross-generational appeal that comes along once in a great while, PS, I Love You is a captivating love letter to the world!

Synopsis:

A wonderfully warm and heartfelt debut from a stunning new talent. Everyone needs a guardian angel! Some people wait their whole lives to find their soul mates. But not Holly and Gerry. Childhood sweethearts, they could finish each other's sentences and even when they fought, they laughed. No one could imagine Holly and Gerry without each other. Until the unthinkable happens.

Gerry's death devastates Holly. But as her 30th birthday looms, Gerry comes back to her. He's left her a bundle of notes, one for each of the months after his death, gently guiding Holly into her new life without him, each note signed 'PS, I Love You'. As the notes are gradually opened, and as the year unfolds, Holly is both cheered up and challenged. The man who knows her better than anyone sets out to teach her that life goes on.

With some help from her friends, and her noisy and loving family, Holly finds herself laughing, crying, singing, dancing--and being braver than ever before. Life is for living, she realises--but it always helps if there's an angel watching over you.

This book is one that inspires. Holly is a lovable party girl who suddenly is taken away from the man she loves when he dies of a brain tumor. At first she thinks she will be unable to continue with her life and will never be happy again. But with the help of her friends and advice from her husband, she learns that moving on can be the hardest, but the best thing she could've done. You will fall in love with the fun characters and the entertaining humor of Cecelia Ahern's writing. This book will make you cry from laughter and on the next page, of sadness. But in the end, you will wish it had never ended.
