Synopsis

WINNER OF THE COSTA NOVEL AWARD



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, Kate Atkinson finds warmth even in life's bleakest moments, and shows an extraordinary ability to evoke the past. Here she is at her most profound and inventive, in a novel that celebrates the best and worst of ourselves.

Customer Reviews

This is a fabulous novel written with Kate Atkinson's customary elegance and wit. It takes the idea of 'what if..?' and runs and runs and runs with it! The book focuses on one character but there are some hints that every character relives their life until...well...until when...? The visions of different versions of the twentieth century are intrinsically interesting with the descriptions of life in the Blitz particularly effective.
