    Barb Barrett has inadequate skills for relationships. In particular, she cannot follow her husband’s instructions. Because of this character “flaw,” she falls through the safety net of her lousy marriage, losing custody of her children and her home as she plummets. Guided only by her intense inner life, and a questionable business plan, Barb is determined to reinvent herself. She moves into a house once occupied by the literary genius Vladimir Nabokov, author of the notorious Lolita.

    Trite, inane and whiny. Poorly written. I kept waiting for this tripe to develop a plot. I kept waiting to develop sympathy for the character. Never happened. It was the result of a bad creative writing assignment: pick three subjects (finding oneself, found novel by famous writer and ?) from a hat and try to string them together in a story. Audible, you let me down!

    On a cold and snowy night in 1910, Ursula Todd is born to an 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 a variety of ways, while the young century marches on towards its second cataclysmic world war.

    A very different book presenting a life that could have been different-and the alternate life was then presented! Confusing at first but then I couldn't wait to hear another alternate life.
