What do you do when the fantasy of reuniting with your first love comes true? Especially when he died in a car crash twenty years earlier...

Louise Harrington pines for her youth as she looks out her office window at the quad. Her ten-year marriage ended four years ago, for reasons she has yet to fathom. At thirty-eight she is as confused about the men in her life as she ever was at seventeen. So when the double of her high school sweetheart appears in her life, she can not tell if she has gone mad, if this is a joke or some kind of miracle. When her best friend Missy gets involved (it has taken Louise years to forgive her for stealing him the first time) history begins to repeat itself as Louise tries to make sense of the crazy and mysterious turn her life has taken.

P.S. is a beautifully written, witty, and profound examination of desire, at once deeply affecting and knowingly humorous about affairs of the heart. Schulman has written a love story, a mystery, a nostalgic romp for anyone who's ever been in and out of love.
