The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom is a modern fairytale. This book is about the first man on earth to count the hours. This man became Father Time and was banished to a cave for centuries for measuring God's greatest gift. In the book, Father Time has to watch all the people who come after him wishing for more days and more years. He gets a chance to set things right by teaching two people the true meaning of time. This is Mitch Albom's best book yet! The Time Keeper is an excellent read and a great love story.
