The Time Traveler's Wife

I just finished reading The Time Traveler's Wife...WOW!!! This is honestly an amazing book! Ironically, as I sit here typing this post, I'm struggling with accurate words of description. I cannot go into too much detail as it could give too much away. I'll do the best I can...
It is about a young girl, Clare, who meets a 'time traveler', Henry. Henry reveals to her that they will are married in the future. Growing up Clare is constantly waiting on Henry to appear until they meet in present time when Clare is 20-years-old and Henry is 28-years-old. The rest is the story of their life together and Henry's time travels in and out.
I love so many things about this book: the mystery of where Henry is coming from or going to (which is all answered by the end of the book), the obvious love Clare and Henry have for each other, just to name a couple. I am so excited to see Audrey Niffenegger's next book, Her Fearful Symmetry, due out this fall. It sounds like it'll be another amazing book!
If you haven't read The Time Traveler's Wife I HIGHLY recommend this book! It is one of my top favs.
