P.S. I Love You (Image)

What would you do if the deceased love of your life could somehow communicate from behind the grave. Irish writer Cecelia Ahern tries to answer that question with tragic love story P.S. I Love You. After losing her husband Gerry, Holly pretty much gives up on living. However, Gerry has other plans. As her thirtieth birthday looms, she gets the best present of all: a collection of letters, one for each month after his death. Each letter she opens both comforts her and challenges her to get out of comfort zone. His words, every “P.S., I love you,” guide her as she journeys to heal and learns to live without Gerry by her side. However, Holly also comes to learn that, while he’s not there physically, part of him will always be with her. Slowly, she starts to see that life goes on and that Gerry would want her to continue living. Heartbreaking yet hopeful, P.S. I Love You is a reminder that love never really dies.
