Holly and Gerry are childhood sweethearts and are happily married, but sudden death of Gerry fused their lamp of love, leaving Holly to live alone in this world. She started believing that, there is no reason left for her to live, as it was only Gerry that completes her. But as they say true love is eternal, and does not end with death, and so was their love.
Gerry left 10 envelopes for Holly, signed with ‘P.S.I Love You’, and only to be opened at the end of each month. Holly actually started living just to open those envelopes at the end of the month, to once again talk with Gerry, but she didn’t realize that with each envelope, with each month she is energizing her life, rejuvenating her life, which has left her alone in this not-so-caring-world.
The author has written the book so beautifully, that while reading you would just enter into Holly’s life and would live her pains, her joy, her cries, and her happiness. This book also made me realize the importance of tea in one’s life.
“Oh, the wonders of magical tea, the answer to all of life’s little problems. You have a gossip and you make a cup of tea, you get fired from your job and you have a cup of tea, your husband tells you he has a brain tumour and you have a cup of tea”
Chris Feeney was the character that I liked the most in the book, for he was just like one of us, and also a movie based on this book directed by Richard LaGravenese, starring Hillary Swank and Gerard Butler was a big hit.
The book is undisputedly an International Bestseller, a perfect mélange of all emotions, a ride to experience love and happiness in a way that would force you to be happy in your own life.
