We will read Life after Life by Kate Atkinson for our August book

The description:

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 that 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, facing the unspeakable evil of the two greatest wars in history. What power and force can one woman exert over the fate of civilization -- if only she has the chance?

=================

We usually chat for the first 15-20 minutes before beginning any discussion about the book.

See you there!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
