The Time Traveler's Wife

by Audrey Niffenegger

Part of the Vintage Magic Series

The Time Traveler's Wife Synopsis

This 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.

The Time Traveler's Wife Press Reviews

Moving, but worth the heartbreak -- Glynis Barber * Daily Express * At it's core The Time Traveler's Wife is an old-fashioned love story. A terrific book-startlingly original construction' * Observer * I was ridiculously entranced by Audrey Niffenegger's big, reckless novel-utterly convincing * Daily Telegraph * Niffenegger exploits the possibilities of her fantasy scenario with immense skill: no wonder this novel has spent weeks on the bestseller lists in the US. This is one of those books that makes you want to eat it up from start to finish * Guardian * Wonky, sexy, incredible * The Times *
