Clare and Henry have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six. They were married when Clare was twenty-three and Henry was thirty-one. 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.

This book is fantastic. It is one of my favorite books of all time. Great story, excellent charachter development. You will fall in love with Henry and everyone in his life. I read the abridged version and finished it and realized there was an unabridged version. I loved it so much I purchased the unabridged and listened to it back to back. A must read.

I have gotten the unabridged version from my library (on tape) in the past, it was so much better. The abridged version leaves SOOOOOO much detail out that you miss much of the story and its hard to follow. You are better to hold off until Audible gets the unabridged version.

What do you do when you are a nanny to an obscenely rich Park Avenue matron named X? Mrs. X refuses to do anything for herself, including cook, clean, or take care of her 4-year-old son. You are expected to do everything, including maintaining the mental health of said 4-year-old, even while Mrs. X decides that it is time for a divorce. You'll have to bear up under the strain with wit and panache, even as the boundaries between your working life and your so-called private life blur, merge, and disappear.

Very entertaining! When I finished this book, I was already missing the charachters. Anyone who ever babysat can understand some of what Nanny has been through. A Must Read.
