What if you had the chance to live your life again and again, until you finally got it right? During a snowstorm in England in 1910, a baby is born and dies before she can take her first breath. 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?

With wit and compassion, she finds warmth even in life's bleakest moments, and shows an extraordinary ability to evoke the past.

As a group with awarded this book 8. We enjoyed it after passing page 180 or there about's. It is well written and thought out. most of the characters are quite charismatic. the end of the book is a bit of a shock and we all felt unnecessary. Overall a good read but needs concentration.
