Grab the tissues!
Novelist Cecelia Ahern has finally announced that she has completed a sequel to her debut novel, P.S. I Love You!.
The author has said that she hopes readers will "ugly cry" through the story as much as she did when she was writing it, reported PopSugar.
The follow-up to the hit book, which was adapted into a movie, is titled Postscript and will be published in autumn and catches up on the story of husband and wife, Holly Kennedy and Gerry Clarke.
PS I Love You, published in 2004, was about the couple’s relationship and how Holly received ten envelopes after Gerry's death - one for each month after his passing - containing messages from Gerry to his wife, all ending with "P.S. I Love You".
The first book became a Number One best-seller in Ireland and stayed on the book charts for 19 weeks.
Ahern announced the news of the new book on Twitter last week, writing, "I’ve done it. I’ve written the sequel to P.S. I Love You and it’s titled Postscript."
