Literary Circle - Life After Life
On July 17th, we will meet at the home of Jill Mountan to discuss Life After Life by Kate Atkinson.
Life After Life is a "dazzling, intricate, and entertaining novel" that was a National Bestseller. 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, the third child of a wealthy English banker and his wife. She dies before she can draw her first breath. On the 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 any number of ways. Ursula's world is in turmoil, and she faces the unspeakable evil of the greatest war in history. What power and force can one woman exert over the fate of civilization, if only she has the chance? Atkinson makes every one of Ursula's lives, as well as the lives of those she touches, feel inestimably precious.
Our discussions will be followed by lunch prepared by the hostess.
