The man 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
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
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.
