Publisher Description

"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."


-DAVID PARKIN'S DIARY. JANUARY 3, 1901

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."

Debora Wilder ,

This is a wonderful, thought provoking historical novel!

The characters are incredibly deep and presented in all the vast measure of their personalities. This story took me on a whirlwind of emotions. I felt amazing joy and deep heart breaking sorrow with all that MaryAnne and David went through.

There is very clear discussion about the most meaningful things in life. It really challenged me to take a long look at my own life. I love it when a book leads me to try and make myself a better person in God’s eyes.
