Next Book Club Selection - The Time Keeper

Each month at the end of book club, we choose our next selection and I can't wait to read this one. We chose 'The Time Keeper' by Mitch Albom for this month's book club book.

I loved reading Mitch Albom's most popular book, Tuesdays with Morrie several years ago and can't wait to read another one of his books. Here is a short summary about the book:
  • In Mitch Albom's newest 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.
I look forward to downloading this book this weekend and catching a few moments here and there to have some 'mommy time' and read!
