“Waiting On” Wednesday: A God in Ruins

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. This week's pre-publication “can't-wait-to-read” selection is:

A God in Ruins: A Novel by Kate Atkinson

Synopsis from Goodreads:
Kate Atkinson's new novel tells the story of Ursula Todd's beloved younger brother Teddy - would-be poet, RAF bomber pilot, husband, and father - as he navigates the perils and progress of the 20th century. For all Teddy endures in battle, his greatest challenge is facing the difficulties of living in a future he never expected to have. A God in Ruins explores the loss of innocence, the fraught transition from the war to peace time, and the pain of being misunderstood, especially as we age.

Proving once again that Kate Atkinson is "one of the finest writers working today" (The Chicago Tribune), A God in Ruins is the triumphant return of a modern master.

Publishing May 26, 2015 by Little, Brown and Company.

I understand that this is not exactly a sequel to her earlier book - Life by Life, was it? Can't be sure of the name. But it does have some of the same characters? I've enjoyed a couple of Kate Atkinson's books and hope to read more.

Yes, it is "sort of" a sequel. It's about the brother of the main character in Life After Life.
