Tuesday Intros, 'Life After Life.'

For the past week I've been reading Kate Atkinson's, 'Life After Life,' a book that moves back and forth over the same periods of time throughout it's 477 pages. The strap line is

We follow the life, or lives, of Ursula Todd at reoccurring dates in the last century - not exactly Groundhog Day but something similar! Here is the opening paragraph for Diane who hosts Tuesday Intros.
Following from November 1930 we are introduced to Ursula, the central character, at the moment of her birth.
I like Kate Atkinson's writing, it is clear and inventive.  I thought that I could guess the ending to 'Life After Life' when I was about half way through the book, but I was wrong!
