Publish Date : Sunday 30 June 2013 - 13:10
‘The Time Keeper’, a book written by American best-selling author Mitch Albom and translated by Shirin Motamedi, will be released in Iran.
The Persian translation of ‘The Time Keeper’ will be released by Morvarid in Iran.
Shirin Motamedi said that ‘The Time Keeper’ is Albom’s latest book published in 2012. In most of his works, Albom considers religious concepts and in ‘The Time Keeper’ he focuses on hope.
In Mitch Albom's newest work of fiction, the inventor of the world's first clock is punished for trying to measure God's greatest gift. He is banished to a cave for centuries and forced to listen to the voices of all who come after him seeking more days, more years. Eventually, with his soul nearly broken, Father Time is granted his freedom, along with a magical hourglass and a mission: a chance to redeem himself by teaching two earthly people the true meaning of time.
He returns to our world--now dominated by the hour-counting he so innocently began--and commences a journey with two unlikely partners: one a teenage girl who is about to give up on life, the other a wealthy old businessman who wants to live forever. To save himself, he must save them both. And stop the world to do so.
