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.
“The Time Traveler’s Wife is one of my favorite books of all time! This story centers on Henry DeTamble and Claire Abshire. Henry is a time traveler and Clair isn’t. Their love story is quite compelling…but it’s the science-fiction twist, multiple perspective storytelling, and non-linear timeline that keep me reading this book year after year. The movie is okay, but the book is perfect in my eyes.” – Jenni Todd
