Why did I love this book?
Kate Atkinson must be my favourite author (up there with Jane Austen).
I highly recommend all and any of her novels as her characters are all at odds with the world. She writes strong women well, (even in her tales of P.I. Jackson Brody).
Her stunning novel Life After Life is not only structured around the different parallel lives of her main character Ursula growing up before and then during WWII, but also because it tackles that age-old question i.e. ‘If you could go back in time would you kill Hitler?’
Ursula Todd is a wonderful main character and the love for her brother, like a heartbeat, resonates with me particularly as my own novel features sister and brotherly love.
