The Time Keeper by Mitch AlbomTime is on no one's side.  Instead it passes by, ignoring the pleas of those who would stop it and drowning out the cries of those who would speed it along.  Mitch Albom's novel, The Time Keeper, explores that theme.  Hidden away in a cave until Heaven meets Earth, Father Time is helpless to help those whose cries he hears every moment for millennia. But now, he is about to be released and sent to help two desperate people discover the meaning of time and what it holds.

The Red Garden by Alice HoffmanStories of secrets, passions and loyalties connect us, their threads running through time to link the past with the present.  Alice Hoffman's novel, The Red Garden, uses these very stories to connect people in Blackwell, Massachusetts, with their past.  The immigrant starting a new life, the civil war soldier saved by a neighbor and a stranger wandering into town...their stories are both familiar and new. Each story intertwines in Blackwell, spinning a web connected by a garden where only red things grow.
