I read a book not long ago about a man who was a pilot in WW2. The story kept switching from his experiences in bombing raids ( written in lots of detail) and his personal life throughout his life. I think he married the girl next door- both from well off middle class families. Has anyone read it ?I just can't remember who wrote it or the title.

Was it A God in Ruins? By Kate Atkinson? There was a prequel to it, Life after Life - both wonderful books. I may be wrong of course. Frequently am!

Two of my favourite books!

Ah yes , that could have been it . Thanks so much.I did read the first of those , and when I started the second book I wondered if I'd read it before.

Yes definitely. Oh for a better memory.

Life After Life was a terrific book. A God in Ruins was slightly disappointing but a good read all the same.
