Henry DeTamble can see the past through time travel. Henry visits the past and he gets to see events of his life good and bad played over and over again. The problem is he can't choose where he ends up which sometimes puts Henry in dangerous situations. Henry meets his wife Clare Abshire when she is six years old. Clare has to deal with always waiting around for Henry while dealing with the pressures of High school. Can Clare and Henry's love strong enough to endure the test of time?
This was my second time reading through this wonderful novel and I must say I enjoyed it just as much as the first time. This book is amazing. It switches back and forth between Henry and Clare talking so you truly get to know what is going on in both of their heads. Henry and Clare truly have a love that will last a lifetime. I enjoyed re-experiencing my favorite parts of this novel over again and I loved every minute I spent reading this novel. Every step of the way throughout this novel I learned to love Clare and Henry as characters even more. As I got near the ending of this novel I started to try to talk myself out of the ending that there would be a different ending this time although I knew that wouldn't happen. I do love the true ending and I think the author made the right choice with the ending it is just so heartbreaking.
I did notice the beginning is a tad confusing with the switching back and forth, but once you got into it I was fine.
Fans of Nicholas Sparks I think you would love this book.
Thanks for reading.
