Overview

Within the first few pages Timekeeper had weaved its essence around my heart and refused to let me go. This is a magnificent tale of a young boy who can't read, or at least he hasn't found the means to do so up to this point in his life. Misunderstood by his teachers and elders, and physically beaten into the ground by his father, Johnnyboy runs away from home at the age of fourteen and sets off into the unknown to find himself. What he couldn't find in his own father, the universe provides for him in a multitude of miraculous ways. In spite of all his suffering and adversities, Johnnyboy's spirit remains intact... better yet, like a boxer taking a relentless barrage of punches, he spits his beating into the ringside pail and comes out dancing like never before into the next rounds/chapters of this magnificent tale of redemption.

    My bet's on the Timekeeper!

    If the Timekeeper was running in the Kentucky Derby, I¿d throw all I had down on him, arrange for the winnings to be electronically transferred to my bank account, and I¿d leave the day before the race, on the holiday of a lifetime! I just finished Timekeeper and I cried at the end as I occasionally due after reading such a masterful piece of literature. And that was a fine thing to do, to cry and be reminded of how much heart, spirit, and soul fills this book. I sincerely thank John Atkinson for writing Timekeeper. His story needed to be told and now the world needs to hear it, for the Timekeeper, for the Fisher King, for Check, Chief, Mama, and even Bugdaddy, but most importantly, for the Universal Soul.
