What appears at first glance to be women’s literature (not sure what that actually means but I think you get it) turns out to be much, much more. It’s a love story spanning many decades with two greatly fleshed out characters. Time travel is handled in a satisfactorily sci-fi manner, and the structure is as clever as any episode of Lost. Here is great fiction that moves so quickly you won’t notice its 500-page length.
