Description:
What if you had the chance to live your life again and again, until you finally got it right? During a snowstorm in England in 1910, a baby is born and dies before she can take her first breath. During a snowstorm in England in 1910, the same baby is born and lives to tell the tale. What if there were second chances? And third chances? In fact an infinite number of chances to live your life? Would you eventually be able to save the world from its own inevitable destiny? And would you even want to? 'Life After Life' follows Ursula Todd as she lives through the turbulent events of the last century again and again. With wit and compassion, she finds warmth even in life's bleakest moments, and shows an extraordinary ability to evoke the past.

The book has a very interesting premise, and starts off really well. Personally, I felt it got weaker around halfway through and I was ultimately left unsatisfied at the end. Maybe it is just another case of it being so hyped up before hand that my expectations were higher than my experience. I don't think I'm invested enough to read the companion book, although I liked Teddy as a character.
