Life After Life by Kate Atkinson

atkinson life after life homeLife After Life has an intriguing premise. The central character, Ursula, dies numerous times throughout the story returning time and again to her life in pre-WWI England, each time meeting a different fate and demise, depending on shifts in her choices or events and having life altering effects on all those around her. It is a story of “what ifs,” reincarnation, and fate. You need to have an open mind because this is not a linear story. The writing is beautiful, atmospheric and tension-filled.

On one level this is a story of one family's life in England over the course of two world wars. The details of everyday life are written so effectively  that I felt I was there witnessing the life changes for returning veterans, the political tensions leading to WWII, and experiencing the horrors of Londoners during the Blitz.

It’s a book that is difficult to explain. You must experience it for yourself!
