During a snowstorm in England in 1910, the same baby is born and lives to tell the tale.
What if there were second chances? And third chances? In fact an infinite number of chances to live your life? Would you eventually be able to save the world from its own inevitable destiny? And would you even want to?
In this book we follow the many lives of Ursula Todd. Everytime Ursula dies she starts her whole life again and has to learn from what happens previously until she gets it right and is able to move on.
I really enjoyed this book, it is such an interesting concept, imagine being able to re-live your life over and over again until you get everything right.
Ursula and her sister Pamela have a great relationship and can talk about anything together despite the year and the general status of women in those times and how women were supposed to be submissive and if anything happened it was their fault.
I do wish Maurice, the oldest Todd child and son would have been developed a bit and he became a bit more likeable but he remains quite unlikeable, however, Teddy and Jimmy are extremely sweet and really nice.
I found it really interesting how Ursual would change just the smallest things in her life and it would change the outcome drstically and I loved that.
