A God in Ruins by Kate Atkinson

Just as good, if not better, than her last book, “Life After Life.”  This novel follows Ursula Todd’s younger brother, Teddy, from childhood to WWII to marriage and a child to old age.  Teddy, unlike Ursula, only has one life, a life he has lived for over nine decades as a thoroughly decent man.  Surrounded by a group of wonderfully well-drawn secondary characters, Teddy navigates life’s highs and lows with love, humor and sensitivity.  A God’s Ruins was so good, I did not want to finish it.
