"This compelling story follows Ursula as she navigates each new life, through a critical era which spans two world wars, an encounter with Hitler and major life events. But what is it that Ursula so desperately needs to stay alive for?

"Can a perfect life ever be lived? Can the course of history ever be changed? What if we could live life again and again?"
