DescriptionThis extraordinary, magical novel is the story of Clare and Henry who have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six, and were married when Clare was twenty-two and Henry thirty. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself pulled suddenly into his past or future. His disappearances are spontaneous and his experiences are alternately harrowing and amusing. "The Time Traveler's Wife" depicts the effects of time travel on Henry and Clare's passionate love for each other with grace and humour. Their struggle to lead normal lives in the face of a force they can neither prevent nor control is intensely moving and entirely unforgettable.

Reviews for The Time Traveler's Wife
The Time Traveler's Wife
"It's hard being left behind. I wait for Henry, not knowing where he is, wondering if he's okay. It's hard to be the one who stays." ... And so begins the story of Henry DeTamble, a librarian, who suffers from a genetic disorder called Chrono-Displacement, which causes him to time travel unpredictably. And his devoted wife, Clare Abshire , who must deal with Henry's absences. Henry and Clare are destined to be together, but destined to be apart.
This is a lovely story of love, loss and hope. A must read. by Rachel
