The Chronoliths - Robert Charles Wilson

A programmer is caught up in what becomes a large conflict when he is near the scene of the appearance of a large time monument.

A former physics student, an old lecturer who happens to be a cutting edge expert in things Calabi-Yau and others wants him around.

The appearance of these things causes a rift in society between the supporters of the mysterious 'Kuin' and everybody else. The former includes the man's daughter, living with her mother and step-father.

Things fall apart, but proof of advanced technology is of course right before people, and that whole time travel paradox thing.
