Unfortunately for Tom, the Albatross Society, the secretive
group which protects people like Tom, has one rule: Never
fall in love. As painful memories of his past and the
erratic behavior of the Society's watchful leader threaten
to derail his new life and romance, the one thing he can't
have just happens to be the one thing that might save him.
Tom will have to decide once and for all whether to remain
stuck in the past, or finally begin living in the present.
How to Stop Time tells a love story across the
agesâ€”and for the agesâ€”about a man lost in time, the woman
who could save him, and the lifetimes it can take to learn
how to live. It is a bighearted, wildly original novel about
losing and finding yourself, the inevitability of change,
and how with enough time to learn, we just might find happiness.
Soon to be a major motion picture starring Benedict Cumberbatch.
