Life After Life: A Novel - by Jill McCorkle

Though perhaps easily confused with the recent novel of the same name by Kate Atkinson, this book does not deal with a single life lived over and over again. Rather, in this Life After Life, residents of Fulton, N.C. -- many at the Pine Haven retirement facility -- share the stories of their lives in turn; a minor character in one tale becomes the narrator of the next. Though death is a constant presence (hospice volunteer Joanna keeps a notebook of every passing she's a part of), it never overwhelms, nor becomes maudlin or depressing, and author Jill McCorkle has a deft hand with humor and her indelible characters.
