The Time Keeper
By: Mitch Albom
“The man who became Father Time.
In Mitch Albom’s exceptional work of fiction, the inventor of the world’s first clock is punished for trying to measure God’s greatest gift. He is banished to a cave for centuries and forced to listen to the voices of all who come after him seeking more days, more years.
Eventually, with his soul nearly broken, Father Time is granted his freedom, along with a magical hourglass and a mission: a chance to redeem himself by teaching two earthly people the true meaning of time.
He returns to our world–now dominated by the hour-counting he so innocently began–and commences a journey with two unlikely partners: one a teenage girl who is about to give up on life, the other a wealthy old businessman who wants to live forever. To save himself, he must save them both. And stop the world to do so.”
We live in a world where we are very aware of time there is no question about that, but this book makes you take pause and really think of our own connection with time and to acknowledge how precious it is. That our days on this earth or so much more then numbers on a calendar or minutes on a clock but time given to live, to experience, and to cherish. This book is written as very compelling, well told story of three people dealing with their own struggles with time and life that will touch your heart and make you think outside of just this book.
