UNABRIDGED EDITION

This bestselling and innovative debut novel from Audrey Niffenegger explores the perfect marriage, one that is tested by challenges the couple can neither control nor predict. An imaginative extension of everyday life, the story asks: What if two people who loved each other deeply, married, and faced a life in which one person remained constant while the other slipped fluidly in and out of time?

A modern love story with a twist that invites us to linger over questions of how life and love change over time.

Synopsis:

The love story of Henry and Claire whose lives are punctuated by Henry's disappearance to different points in time--sometimes even back to visit Claire as a young woman. When Henry meets Claire, he is twenty-eight, and she is twenty. He's a hip, handsome librarian; she is an art student with Botticelli hair. Henry has never met Claire before; Claire has known Henry since she was six...

Superb story-telling. This book had me laughing and crying right up to the last page. I enjoyed the depth of the characters. Even though Claire and Henry are soul-mates, they are far from perfect.

Time and again my mind drifts back to this book, several years after I first read it.

It is a masterwork, tying together an intricate and imaginative story with elegant, poignant writing. Yes, I suppose some might label this "romantic fiction," but in my mind, the seamless way that Ms. Niffenegger weaves the fantastic with the heart-wrenching transcends any ordinary tortured love story.

It is a beautiful book, one I always list among my most favorites.
