The Time Traveler's Wife (Paperback)Audrey Niffenegger (author)
Deploying science fiction tropes in service of an exquisite love story, Niffenegger chronicles a heart-breaking, unique tale of a man who periodically changes age, and the enduring passion between him and his beloved.
This is the extraordinary love story of Clare and Henry who met when Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six, and were married when Clare was twenty-two and Henry thirty.
Impossible but true, because Henry suffers from a rare condition where his genetic clock periodically resets and he finds himself pulled suddenly into his past or future. In the face of this force they can neither prevent nor control, Henry and Clare's struggle to lead normal lives is both intensely moving and entirely unforgettable.

I've got to admit, it's not (for me) the tear-jerker I expected it to be, though when I said this to a friend I was told I had "no soul", so maybe my opinion is just a little different to everyone... More
