Happy Monday Savvy Readers! A chill is in the air and the fall weather is well underway! Fortunately for us bookworms, fall is the perfect season for reading, whether you’re willing to brave the chill for some last-minute sun or perfectly happy to stay curled up inside with a hot cup of tea, this week’s 50 Book Pledge Featured Read is the perfect book to get lost in!
After her first novel PS, I Love You left many of us emotionally distraught, Cecelia Ahern has returned with the long-awaited sequel Postscript, which picks up seven years since Holly Kennedy’s husband died.
The only reason you need to get out of bed and head to your local bookstore (or order online if you prefer your creature comforts). In Postscript, six years have passed since Holly read Gerry’s final letter, urging her to find the courage to forge a new life. She’s proud of all the ways in which she has grown and evolved. But when a group inspired by Gerry’s letters, calling themselves the PS, I Love You Club, approaches Holly asking for help, she finds herself drawn back into a world that she worked so hard to leave behind.
Reluctantly, Holly begins a relationship with the club, even as their friendship threatens to destroy the peace she believes she has achieved. As each of these people calls upon Holly to help them leave something meaningful behind for their loved ones, Holly will embark on a remarkable journey – one that will challenge her to ask whether embracing the future means betraying the past, and what it means to love someone forever…
Emotionally raw but ultimately uplifting, Cecelia Ahern‘s newest novel is sure to sweep readers away on an emotional journey and connect them with characters they won’t soon forget. If you loved PS, I Love You, you don’t want to miss its highly-anticipated sequel! A gifted storyteller with a talent for tapping into that which moves us, Ahern’s latest novel is also rumoured to become a movie that would see Hilary Swank reprise the role of Holly Kennedy!
