P.S. I Love You by Cecelia Ahern

A novel about holding on, letting go, and learning to love again.
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!
Cecelia Ahern, the 22-year-old daughter of Ireland's prime minister, holds a degree in Journalism and Media Communications. She has completed her second novel, Rosie Dunne, and is at work on her third. She lives in Dublin, Ireland.
My Thoughts: I enjoyed this, it was sweet and sad. The family and friends were priceless. Now I have to go see the movie. I hope it is as good.
Chick Lit, loss of spouse, romance, Ireland

I left this book back home and can't wait to get back and pick up where I've left off! Sigh, I'd probably have to re-read some parts again since I last saw it in Jan 2009 :P

I loved this one, even though it was really sad, so is the movie but it is a little bit different!

Haven't read the book but I did enjoy the movie, my hubby was more interested in the music than he was in the storyline though, lol.

I wouldn't mind reading this book one day .. glad you enjoyed it.
