  1. Great list! I absolutely love Jess Waters, such a great writer!

  2. Thanks for this very useful list. The only one I’ve read is Kate Atkinson’s Life after Life, which is wonderful. Not everyone in our library reading group loved it but we all thought her characters were fascinating and we spent a long time talking about them! I’ll look out for some of the others on the list for our future reading.
