What other text can I compare The Time Traveler's Wife to?!?

For my A-Level English Literature coursework I need to compare two texts.

One of the texts I've chosen is The Time Traveler's Wife but I'm stuck on what other text I can compare this to?

It doesn't have to be solely on Time Travel, I can compare themes such as the idea of loss, free will, waiting or even companionship.

Wondering if anyone has any recommendations on what text would be good to compare?
