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.

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.

T he Timekeeper's Son, a moving father-son tale, explores middle-aged grief and youthful yearnings, the price of hidden disabilities and wounds, and the claims and limits of community. In the small town of Milledge, Georgia, aspiring teenage filmmaker Josh Lovejoy hits a jogger while driving late at night. But this is not just any jogger: the victim is prominent local activist and historian David Masters. The accident not only puts Masters in the hospital in a coma, it shatters the fragile Lovejoy household. Adrift from friends and family, a shocked Josh reluctantly takes up his court-ordered community service work at the Good Shepherd School for Disabled Children. Meanwhile, the comatose Masters is visited by the ghost of the singer Peggy Lee, and his childless wife Meg, consumed with grief, fantasizes that Josh is the son she might have had. In love with an unstable girl, and estranged from his angry father and preoccupied mother, Josh escapes to New York City. Things there do not go as planned and, overwhelmed, Josh makes a fateful decision that puts him beyond the help of his family. Facing physical and spiritual annihilation, he must choose between the death of the heart and the acceptance of the imperfect good that is his life. Josh's story reminds readers that while our lives may be flawed, they can still be embraced with love.

THE FIVE PEOPLE YOU MEET IN HEAVEN is a wonderfully moving fable that addresses the meaning of life, and life after death, in the poignant way that made TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE such an astonishing book. The novel's protagonist is an elderly amusement park maintenance worker named Eddie who, while operating a ride called the 'Free Fall', dies while trying to save a young girl who gets in the way of a falling cart that hurtles to earth. Eddie goes to heaven, where he meets five people who were unexpectedly instrumental in some way in his life. While each guide takes him through heaven, Eddie learns a little bit more about what his time on earth meant, what he was supposed to have learned, and what his true purpose on earth was. Throughout there are dramatic flashbacks where we see scenes from his troubled childhood, his years in the army in the Philippines jungle, and with his first and only love, his wife Marguerite. THE FIVE PEOPLE YOU MEET IN HEAVEN is the perfect book to follow TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE. Its compellingly affecting themes and lyrical writing will fascinate Mitch Albom's huge readership.
