Best-selling author Cecelia Ahern has announced she's written a sequel to her classic tearjerker P.S. I Love You – and fans are already rushing to preorder it.
First published back in 2004, P.S. I Love You follows widower Holly as she tries to make sense of her life after her husband Gerry dies from a brain tumour.
Leaving behind 10 envelopes for his wife to remember him by, Gerry asks Holly to open one of his letters every month after his death.
And in keeping with the book's title, Gerry signs off each and every note with "P.S. I love you". (No, YOU'RE crying…)
And now – fifteen years and one hit movie starring Gerard Butler and Hillary Swank later – our all-time favourite romantic read is finally getting a sequel.
Taking to Twitter to announce her latest novel, Cecelia wrote: "I have BIG NEWS!
"I've written a sequel to PS I LOVE YOU – titled POSTSCRIPT.
"POSTSCRIPT will be published September 19th in the UK & Ireland. I hope you'll welcome back Holly… & Gerry… & that reading it will be as emotional for you as it was for me."
Available to pre-order now, this long-awaited sequel opens with Holly Kennedy being approached by a group called the "PS I Love You Club" who have been inspired by Gerry's goodbye letters.
According to the Waterstones synopsis, "the club wants Holly to help them with their own parting messages for their loved ones to discover after they're gone.
"Holly is sure of one thing – no way is she being dragged back to the grief she has left behind.
"It's taken seven years to reinvent herself and she's ready to move on with her life."
And to no one's surprise, the news of the P.S. I Love You sequel has pretty much sent fans into meltdown.
Rushing to pre-order their copies, one replied: "OH MY GOD the best news, can't wait to read it."
Another added: "BECAUSE THE FIRST ONE DIDN'T BREAK ME ENOUGH? I can't get to the end of the first page without crying."
A third superfan wrote: "Thank you SO much! I can't remember the last time I felt this happy!! I'll be counting down the days to its release."
