Life After Life

Kate Atkinson's Life After Life is a brilliant fantasy about a girl born at the beginning of the 20th century who has the ability to relive her life over again, retaining memories of earlier lives. Effectively, her life is a catalog of all the ways that we maneuver to evade our destiny: no matter how ingeniously she re-shapes her life to thwart one peril or another, there are certain absolutely intractable events that cannot be ameliorated.
