Description : Sixteen years after Cecelia Ahern's bestselling phenomenon PS, I Love You captured the hearts of millions, the long-awaited sequel follows Holly as she helps strangers leave their own messages behind for loved ones. Seven years after her husband's death -- six since she read his final letter -- Holly Kennedy has moved on with her life. When Holly's sister asks her to tell the story of the "PS, I Love You" letters on her podcast -- to revisit the messages Gerry wrote before his death to read after his passing -- she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. But after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they're terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones. Suddenly, Holly finds herself drawn back into a world she's worked tirelessly to leave behind -- but one that leads her on another incredible, life-affirming journey. With her trademark blend of romance, humor, and bittersweet life lessons, Postscript is the perfect follow-up to Ahern's beloved first novel.
Description : Before diving into Cecelia Ahern's new sequel, Postscript, discover how Holly's journey began in this New York Times bestseller. Everyone needs a guardian angel! Some people wait their whole lives to find their soul mates. But not Holly and Gerry. Childhood sweethearts, they could finish each other's sentences and even when they fought, they laughed. No one could imagine Holly and Gerry without each other. Until the unthinkable happens. Gerry's death devastates Holly. But as her 30th birthday looms, Gerry comes back to her. He's left her a bundle of notes, one for each of the months after his death, gently guiding Holly into her new life without him, each note signed 'PS, I Love You'. As the notes are gradually opened, and as the year unfolds, Holly is both cheered up and challenged. The man who knows her better than anyone sets out to teach her that life goes on. With some help from her friends, and her noisy and loving family, Holly finds herself laughing, crying, singing, dancing--and being braver than ever before. Life is for living, she realises--but it always helps if there's an angel watching over you.
Description : The story of Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio is a timeless tale. Both of these legends had extraordinary careers in their individual fields, as well as remarkable existences. This book chronicles each of their lives, from the days before they met, until that magical night in 1952 when their paths finally crossed. Their lives would never be the same after that. Though their marriage lasted for nine months, their love endured beyond those years and Joe’s heart yearned for no one else, even at his deathbed thirty-seven years after her untimely passing. This account shares of their love and focuses on their marriage in 1954, and their trip to Japan and her trip to Korea, during the nearly one month time span that the couple was in the Far East together. A segment of the author’s collection of rare and unpublished photographs of both stars are featured within this Google edition, some never before seen since they were taken approximately sixty years ago in Japan and Korea. Due to file size constraints with file delivery via Google that inhibits image quality, the print version of the book has the expanded selection of photos from the author's collection, as well as memorabilia from both of the stars. This book weaves in elements about baseball, entertainment, the military, the tragedies of stardom, and above all, the love Marilyn and Joe shared. The story told here unveils other characters in the casts of both of their lives, including interviews with family members of Marilyn Monroe, headed by Marilyn’s second cousin, Jason Edward Kennedy. This book begins to also debunk the myths and propaganda about the life and death of Marilyn Monroe. Additionally, controversy within Joe’s final days is also explored. Marilyn Monroe & Joe DiMaggio – Love In Japan, Korea & Beyond, is the first book in the series endorsed by MarilynMonroeFamily.com, the website run by the relatives of William Marion Hogan, Marilyn Monroe’s great-uncle.
Description : The dead are still with us. Contemporary therapists and counselors are coming to understand what's been known for millennia in most religions and in most cultures outside the Western milieu: it's important to continue bonds between the living and the dead. Taking these connections seriously, Goss and Klass explore how bonds with the dead are created and maintained. In doing so, they unearth a fascinating new way to look at the origins and processes of religion itself. Examining ties to dead family members, teachers, religious and political leaders across religious and secular traditions, the authors offer novel ways of understanding grief and its role in creating meaning. Whether for classes in comparative religion and death and dying, or for bereavement counselors and other trying to make sense of grief, this book helps us understand what it means to feel connected to those dead but not lost.
