The Time Traveler’s Wife

A dazzling novel in the most untraditional fashion, this is the remarkable story of Henry DeTamble, a dashing, adventuresome librarian who travels involuntarily through time, and Clare Abshire, an artist whose life takes a natural sequential course. Henry and Clare’s passionate love affair endures across a sea of time and captures the two lovers in an impossibly romantic trap, and it is Audrey Niffenegger’s cinematic storytelling that makes the novel’s unconventional chronology so vibrantly triumphant. An enchanting debut and a spellbinding tale of fate and belief in the bonds of love, The Time Traveler’s Wife is destined to captivate readers for years to come.

    I know! I know! There are a zillion books out there that I have not read, but occasionally I love rereading a favorite. This is an encore read, and I have to be honest that I was just a little disappointed the second time around. It’s a wonderful story–as long as you can suspend the whole scientific impossibility of time travel–but the book’s special charm was missing the second time around. Was that because I know what happens? Not sure.This is the story of Henry, who unwillingly…
