Timepiece by Richard Paul Evans

"Of all, clockmakers and morticians should bear the keenest sense of priority-their lives
daily spent in observance of the unflagging procession of time... and the end thereof."


So begins Timepiece, the unforgettable story of hope and the source of the wisdom
MaryAnne Parkin shared with Richard in The Christmas Box. With the help of David
Parkin's diary, Richard discovers the mystery of the timepiece and the significance of
MaryAnne's request.

Nineteen years previous, only eleven days before her death, MaryAnne Parkin had bequeathed a
beautiful rose-gold timepiece to my keeping.

"The day before you give Jenna away," she had said, her voice trembling as she handed me
the heirloom, "give this to her for the gift."

I was puzzled by her choice of words.

"Her wedding gift?" I asked.

She looked at me sadly, then forced a fragile smile.

"You will know what I mean."

Timepiece is a very sweet, romantic story about David Parkin, a young business owner and collector of timepiece. He falls in love with MaryAnne, his new secretary. Within a short time they are married, have a baby girl, then suddenly face great hardships together. The story focuses not only on David & MaryAnne's love. The significance of David's passion for clocks and other timepieces is brought up repeatedly as David learns to find meaning for his life in people, instead of the passage of time and the measurement of it. Timepiece is the second of several books written by Richard Paul Evans. If you're looking for clean, sentimental romance novels with a significant message to share, you will absolutely love Evans's books.

The Timepiece gives the reader a renewed sense of life. It makes apparent all the good things life offers and how we should appreciate everyone God has placed in our lives. Live the days like there your last.

I read this book because it was there, and I'm glad it was. It's well written and moves quickly. I stayed up to read the entire book and went to bed with a renewed appreciation of my family.

Suffice it to say that I am totally disappointed with B&N. I cannot even get an update on my account and I had a $95 credit. With my wife ordering books, I have no idea whether you are charging me or reducing my account. Fortunately I also have Kindle....where we are going once our credit runs out. John P Duff
