Mitch Albom has made his living writing fantastic little novels that pack a rather large punch. The Time Keeper just continues the tradition. The lesson that Father Time was trying to teach Victor and Sarah is that God gave us an infinite amount of time on this planet so that we are sure to treasure each and every moment. If we were to become immortal, what is there to make us treasure each new day that comes? Father Time tries to get his message across in an "Scrooge" kind of way, but it just adds to the "feel" of the novel.

Bottom line, The Time Keeper is a quick little novel that feels as if it were right out of a Fairy Tale. I learned a lesson that was much needed at this time in my life. Memories are nice to have and revisit, but it is important to cherish each and every day as if it were your last.
