"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."

Richard Paul Evans is the bestselling author of The Christmas Box. He lives in Salt Lake City, Utah, with his wife, Keri, and their three daughters, Jenna, Allyson, and Abigail. He is currently working on his next novel.From AudioFile:
A sweet romance with a sour ending, TIMEPIECE is narrated with precision and force. A millionaire and a poor pregnant woman make a strange pair but eventually work things out. Gregory Gorton does well with the male lead but falls short on all other parts, sounding irritatingly squeaky as the wife (like a man trying to raise his voice several levels higher to imitate a female's). The other parts sound unrealistic. This fairy tale turned nightmare is timeless but would benefit from a straight reading.
