I love Kate Atkinson books - this one being no exception and maybe my favorite. Trying to explain the concept of being reborn over and over without sounding too gimmicky is really hard. This is simply a story of one girl's life from birth to WW1 through WW2 with different twists each time her path is revisited. While it took some getting used to, I found myself waiting for the next "throw away" scenario. What a fantastic time Ms. Atkinson must have had coming up with the simplest changes making a whole different life - basically a different book!
