Professional heartstring-tugger Mitch Albom has written a new novel that might appear to veer away from his usual style, but The Time Keeper (out Aug. 28) does touch upon his go-to themes. Albom’s fiction and nonfiction books — the most famous of which is the 1997 best-seller Tuesdays with Morrie — typically center on death and loss, and his previous novels, The Five People You Meet in Heaven and For One More Day, have dealt with the afterlife and some supernatural elements. The Time Keeper is the legend of Father Time — not as a bearded scythe-wielder, but as a young boy. Sound interesting? Fans of Albom can check out the exclusive cover (left) and first excerpt below!
