Rediscover the extraordinary love story that inspired the major new Sky TV series.

Clare and Henry met when Clare was just six and Henry thirty-six, and were married when Clare was twenty-two and Henry thirty.

Impossible but true.

The Time Traveler's Wife is the international bestselling novel of a time-altering love. Henry is a librarian who suffers from a rare condition where his genetic clock periodically resets, finding himself pulled suddenly into his past or future. Meanwhile, Clare is an artist waiting all her life for her great love Henry to appear. In the face of this force neither can prevent nor control, Henry and Clare's struggle to lead normal lives is both intensely moving and entirely unforgettable.

'Dark, unpredictable, incredibly clever and a modern romance' Grazia

Moving, but worth the heartbreak * Daily Express *
At its 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 *
Pick up Niffenegger's book and you'll experience a visceral thrill that only a few novels provide. An elegy to love and loss * Independent on Sunday *
Truly original * Vogue *
Magical - memorable...poignant, amusing and intensely moving portrait of a unique relationship - quirky, romantic, and kept the right side of cute * Mail on Sunday *
The central story is so strong and touching...ingenious... A rare book * Evening Standard *
A sweet, original fantasy - its flights of authorial fancy balanced by down-to-earth characters and the matter-of-fact language * Sunday Telegraph *
Henry's journeys back and forth are by turns slapstick noir and unbearably poignant, and Clare's child and teen narrations disturbingly pitch-perfect. Philosophical speculation occurs in the most unlikely devices and morality, despite the temptations of plot, remains intact. This is alarmingly close to perfection, and balm to the jaded * Scotland on Sunday *
One of those books where you read the first paragraph and you're hooked... Unmissable * Irish Independent *
From the first page to the last, The Time Traveler's Wife works its unique magic... A beautiful, lyrical book * The Times *
After I read it I wanted to share it with everybody, and even gave a copy to Madonna when she co-presented my show * Easy Living *
Dark, unpredictable, incredibly clever and a modern romance * Grazia *
A delight * Bookseller *
A love affair that will totally capture your heart * Glamour Magazine *
An irrestible romance * InStyle *
A beautifully written, compulsive look at a couple trying to live an ordinary life in extraordinary circumstances * Image *
An intriguing, often funny love story * Eve *
