Our book group meets on the last Tuesday of each month at 1:30pm.
The Timekeeper by Mitch Albom
The main protagonist is named Dor. He is the fictional inventor of the clock but he does not appreciate the time he has. He and his wife are having marriage troubles.
Dor is worried about running out of time so he tries to discover a way to measure time – by inventing the clock. However, this leads to a punishment and he is exiled into a cave for years in order to pay for this crime. Here he understands the true value of time and becomes known as ‘Father Time’. He realizes that he can redeem himself and prevent his exile by helping others understand the importance of time.
