    Clare and Henry have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was 36. They were married when Clare was 23 and Henry was 31. 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 misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future. His disappearances are spontaneous, his experiences unpredictable, alternately harrowing and amusing.

    Overall

    I rarely write reviews. That being said, I felt it appropriate to give interested parties a bit of a warning before they purchase this book. Yes, it is a well-written book. Yes, I listened to the whole thing. However, I would not classify this book as SF. Time travel is portrayed as a genetic defect, not some other-worldy gift, and is treated as more of a medical issue than something amazing and useful. Perhaps I am alone in this, but for me, the appeal of SF is that it takes the reader to another world or reality. There was really nothing remarkable about the story of Henry's life other than the fact that he was a chrono-displaced person who shared an amazing love with a woman who put up with his constant popping in and out of her time. So, if you are looking for great SF, look elsewhere. However, if you are interested in a poignant romance, this is a good one.
