From the author who's inspired millions worldwide with books like Tuesdays with Morrie and The Five People You Meet in Heaven comes his most imaginative novel yet, The Time Keeper--a compelling fable about the first man on Earth to count the hours. 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. Told in Albom's signature spare, evocative prose, this remarkably original tale will inspire readers everywhere to reconsider their own notions of time, how they spend it, and how precious it truly is.

Two o’clock was missing. In an alternate Victorian world controlled by clock towers, a damaged clock can fracture time—and a destroyed one can stop it completely. It’s a truth that seventeen-year-old clock mechanic Danny Hart knows all too well; his father has been trapped in a Stopped town east of London for three years. Though Danny is a prodigy who can repair not only clockwork, but the very fabric of time, his fixation with staging a rescue is quickly becoming a concern to his superiors. And so they assign him to Enfield, a town where the tower seems to be forever plagued with problems. Danny’s new apprentice both annoys and intrigues him, and though the boy is eager to work, he maintains a secretive distance. Danny soon discovers why: he is the tower’s clock spirit, a mythical being that oversees Enfield’s time. Though the boys are drawn together by their loneliness, Danny knows falling in love with a clock spirit is forbidden, and means risking everything he’s fought to achieve. But when a series of bombings at nearby towers threaten to Stop more cities, Danny must race to prevent Enfield from becoming the next target or he’ll not only lose his father, but the boy he loves, forever.

Colleen Houck, New York Times bestselling author of the Tiger’s Curse series said, “Timekeeper is a haunting, mysterious dream; a book you don't want to miss!” This sequel to Timeless combines breathtaking romance with a tale of complex magic in a story that will have every reader believing in the transcendent power of love. When Philip Walker appears as a new student in Michele Windsor's high school class, she is floored. He is the love she thought she lost forever when they said goodbye during her time travels last century. Overjoyed that they can resume the relationship they had a lifetime ago, Michele eagerly approaches him and discovers the unthinkable: he doesn't remember her. In fact, he doesn't seem to remember anything about the Philip Walker of 1910. Michele then finds her father's journals, which tell stories of his time-traveling past. As she digs deeper, she learns about his entanglement with a mysterious and powerful organization called the Time Society and his dealings with a vengeful Windsor ancestor. Michele soon finds herself at the center of a rift over 120 years in the making, one whose resolution will have life-or-death consequences.

Sixteen miles downstream from the birthplace of George Washington where the Shenandoah River comes out of the Blue Ridge carrying sycamore leaves and acorns came a gem that shone brighter than most. That gem was Linda Wails, but as providence would have it her life took as many steep drops and winding turns as did that river. The death of her father, a move to a godforsaken place with so few trees and so much sand, a bout with cancer, and an unrelenting relationship with her son Corey, left Linda no choice but to throw her hands up to the world and submit. The Time Keeper is the story of Linda's return and one last somersault down the river is required. With the North Carolina state baseball playoffs in full swing, seventeen year old Corey Wails has more important matters to attend than his mother's recent wish to make amends. To Corey, life is as simple as the game -- a fastball, a curve ball, and waste a pitch before the strike out. It is the game that Corey loves, and like a ball player who hears no chatter he tightens his blinders and races towards the finish line. But what he finds when he gets there bares no resemblance to what he had dreamed for so long. His mother's change of heart is puzzling to Corey; he wonders how such a thing occurred, how something larger than life itself crept inside the body of Linda Wails and whispered, 'It will be okay Linda, this is the natural way of things.' Linda wonders if that voice will ever reach her son. Perhaps the voice that is larger than life itself is none but our own, buried deep inside of us. One thing is certain, the Time Keeper will not be kept waiting.

Only Patrick can save them from destruction. The excitement of Finders Keepers continues as Patrick makes his desperate bid to win a race against time.
