The latter stages of the book reminded me of scenes from Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, when Scrooge is shown how his life plays out differently when he chooses a particular path of living. Sarah and Victor are lucky individuals to be shown how their actions affect both themselves and others, but Father Time is also learning how his actions affected people in not only his lifetime, but throughout time itself.
This is a magical, inspirational read along similar lines of philosophical author Paulo Coelho. It is so simple in its story but so sublimely written that you’ll race to the end to learn Father Time’s lessons with him. Overall The Time Keeper is a deeply truthful and eye-opening read.
