Love Conquers All
“Henry and Clare are lovers who miss each other in time and space, but they are meant to be together against all odds”
Life together: Can time traveler's have kids?

Personal Review: FIVE STARS
The alternating narration between characters and the concept of time travel as a realistic situation/problem was original and engaging.

Professional Review: “The whole is skillfully written with a blend of distinct characters and heartfelt emotions that hopscotch through time, begging interpretation on many levels. Public libraries should plan on purchasing multiple copies of this highly recommended book.”
