When Henry meets Clare, he is twenty-eight and she is twenty. Henry has never met Clare before; Clare has known Henry since she was six.

Książka zdecydowanie niesamowita. Czytając ją miałam wrażenie, że przeżywam historię, która wydarzyła się naprawdę. Aż brak mi słów. Pochwalę każdy możliwy wątek.
