Claire’s Top Ten Favorite Female Time Travelers #8 Ursula Todd
September 18, 2015
Rewind Files author Claire Willett shares a list of her favorite chrono-jumping ladies from movies, books and television!
8. Ursula Todd (from Life After Life by Kate Atkinson)
Kate Atkinson’s mind-meltingly complex novel tells the story of a girl named Ursula Todd who keeps being born and then dying over and over again. The story of the night of her birth is always the same, but the course of Ursula’s life unfolds differently each time, and impacts history in a different way. Ursula is a totally captivating heroine from childhood through adulthood – tough and clever and brave and heroic – and it’s fascinating watching all the different versions of the life she has lived (might have lived? almost lived?) intersect with and mirror each other.
