What other readers are saying about this title:
I liked this book, but it was very confusing, with all the reincarnations scattered hither thither. I thnk I would have to read it 3 or 4 times, to make better sense of it.

We follow the lives—and lives they are—of Ursula Todd and her family and friends at Fox Corner, a little corner in the English countryside, during all the years of her life, which encompasses much of the last century but particularly her young adulthood during WWII. How interesting that today when I read this day’s The Writer’s Almanac it would close with this quote of Ralph Waldo Emerson [who] wrote: "Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense." It could have been Ursula saying this. This book will disappoint many of Kate Atkinson’s mystery fans, but I came to love it after a slow start.
