Summary
On a snowy February night in 1910 a baby girl is born to Sadie Todd. With the cord wrapped around her neck, the baby dies before she can draw a breath. And so begins the many lives and deaths of Ursula Todd. On that same night Ursula Todd is born and survives. In some lives she does not survive past childhood. In some she lives to be middle aged. Each death is different but each life leads her in the same direction: war.
Critique
Dark and haunting, this exploration of life, death, and war will stick with readers long after the story ends.
