The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

In The Time Traveler's Wife, Audrey Niffenegger tells a touching love story with a new twist. Henry DeTamble is a librarian who suffers from a genetic disorder that causes him to shift backward and forward through time. Without a moment's notice, he disappears, leaving behind his clothes and everything else, and arrives naked at another time in his life. Sometimes he even meets a different version of himself. He discovers that he has met Clare Abshire since she was a young girl, making several visits with her throughout her life. Clare falls in love with a man who can't control when he comes and goes. Far from being a science fiction novel, Audrey Niffenegger uses the time travel device as a way of drawing out her characters who want to overcome all obstacles in their love. Receiving glowing reviews, the Denver Post says, "Niffenegger's beautiful prose and sure-handed way with character development lifts The Time Traveler's Wife beyond the realm of romance potboilers and into the mainstream of literature that will last." This is one of our favorite books, a highly recommended read.
