In the first pages after the prologue of this novel, Ursula Todd is born and dies almost immediately; but in this singular fiction, that is only the beginning of the story. Thereafter she is repeatedly reborn, lives, and dies several times, each time surrounded by the same family. As the story progresses, so does its protagonist, assimilating lessons that she has learned along the way. Kate Atkinson's Life After Life is no contrived séance room saga of reincarnation; it is a sage tale of living through historic hard times and learning lessons along the way. Superlative early read reviews.
