The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom

Description

From the author who's impressed hundreds of thousands worldwide with books like Tuesdays with Morrie and The Five Folks You Meet in Heaven comes his most imaginative novel yet, The Time Keeper–a compelling myth about the first man on this planet to depend the hours.

The person who became Father Time.

In Mitch Albom's newest work of fiction, the inventor of the world's first clock is punished for trying to measure God's finest present. He’s banished to a cave for centuries and forced to hearken to the voices of all who come after him in the hunt for more days, extra years. Eventually, with his soul virtually damaged, Father Time is granted his freedom, along with a magical hourglass and a mission: a chance to redeem himself by means of educating two earthly people the proper meaning of time.

He returns to our world–now dominated by the hour-counting he so innocently started–and commences a journey with two not going partners: one a teenage girl who is ready to give up on lifestyles, the other a rich old businessman who wants to are living eternally. To save lots of himself, he must store them each. And forestall the world to take action.

Told in Albom's signature spare, evocative prose, this remarkably original story will inspire readers far and wide to reconsider their very own notions of time, how they spend it and the way treasured it truly is.
