Life After Life
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
What if you could live again and again, until you got it right?
On a cold and snowy night in 1910, Ursula Todd is born to an English banker and his wife. She dies before she can draw her first breath. On that same cold and snowy night, Ursula Todd is born, lets out a lusty wail, and embarks upon a life that will be, to say the least, unusual. For as she grows, she also dies, repeatedly, in a variety of ways, while the young century marches on towards its second cataclysmic world war.
Does Ursula's apparently infinite number of lives give her the power to save the world from its inevitable destiny? And if she can -- will she?
Darkly comic, startlingly poignant, and utterly original -- this is Kate Atkinson at her absolute best.

Hard to Folow
I had a hard time following this book. The author kept flip flopping back and forth.
This was one of the most interesting and creative books I have ever read. I can not imagine writing one storyline let alone a multitude as the author does with this novel.
The idea of getting to start your life over to set things right is intriguing.
I also thought that the historical aspect of the book was well done, especially the view from the enemy's side.
A thoroughly enjoyable read.
