My first book review on the new site and I wanted to start off with a good one and I found the perfect one and it just so happens to be the first book I read of November.
First off I have to say this is my favourite read of 2020 so far, without a shadow of a doubt!!
So let’s have a bit of blurb:
It’s been seven years since Holly Kennedy’s husband died – six since she read his final letter, urging Holly 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…
I loved PS I love you, it was a moving, thought provoking novel and the film was just as beautiful with amazing casting. So this sequel had big boots to fill…and boy did it do a brilliant job.
This book is just as emotional if not more so (several tears were shed during reading) and it was such a moving story which tackles some of the most difficult topics, dying and what happens to the family and loved ones after you have died.
This is a journey of acceptance, grief, loss and growth. In the story you watch Holly grow even more into a strong individual who has so much love to give. It will make you laugh and it will make you cry. But it will also make you think… a lot. It will make you consider mortality, the frailness of life and the legacy you leave behind and how precious both life and legacies are to the living.
This was a beautifully written book with some amazing quotes which will make you stop for a few minutes just to ponder on those words. Roots and wings is likely to be a new mantra for you (read it and you will understand)
5 out of 5 does not express enough my love for this book. It will definitely be a re read soon for me. If you enjoyed PS I love you then I urge you to read this. I really hope this is picked up by a film company and adapted to screen as I feel the messages in the book could easily transfer to screen.
Also, my dog, Sots gives it her sign of approval.
It is heart breaking at times and emotional but it will leave you with some poignant life lessons. This is the perfect novel for 2020.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – shoot for the moon, and even if you miss you’ll land among the stars. This is definitely 5 out of 5 from me.
Have you read this novel yet? What did you think? I would love to hear your feedback on it. Did you think it was better than PS I Love You? Worse? I think it was the perfect complement to the original novel and I would say it was on par with it. What do you think?
Much love 💘
