An unabashedly romantic book, that can be read many times. The construction of the story (moving back and forth between the two separate lives of the hero) is jarring at first, but supremely effective.

If you don't know the plot (and haven't seen the wonderful film with Greer Garson and Ronald Colman), the last page holds a special thrill for you.

This is a book for people who love The Time Traveler's Wife and books like it.

Note: the Print on demand 2018 reprint is a bare-bones book, with print very small on pages with very large margins. There is no information about the book itself, and the back cover is blank except for the ISBN. But it was only $8.95 to purchase, so.... The Aug 2019 book is a much better production, with easier to read print.
