A modern fairy tale where Father Time is punished for creating ‘Time’ and eventually is offered freedom if he will teach two diverse folk about this precious commodity. One a teenage girl wanting to speed time up and die, the other a wealthy man trying to slow time down and grab more years. This is a very spiritual tale of how to use time wisely. Beautifully written.

If you like Mitch Albom you might also like to read books by Paulo Coelho, Diana Cooper and Yann Martel.

Synopsis

The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom

Banished for centuries, as punishment for trying to measure time, the inventor of the world's first clock is finally granted his freedom, along with a mission: a chance to redeem himself by teaching two people the true meaning of time. He returns to our world and embarks on a journey with two unlikely partners: a teenage girl who is about to give up on life and a wealthy, ageing businessman who wants to live for ever. To save himself, he must save them both. Gripping, and filled with deep human truth, this unforgettable story will inspire readers everywhere to reconsider their own notions of time and just how precious it truly is.
