Follows the love story of MaryAnne and David Parkin as they struggle with the lessons of love, loyalty, and forgiveness and cope with tragedy, in a story about the gifts we pass on to our children

Blackwell North Amer
Hope is a rare gift that, if we are lucky, comes to us with the power to heal our lives. The deepest sense of hope often springs from the hardest lessons in life. It is in the darkest skies that stars are best seen - perhaps it is divine irony that within the darkest moments we are capable of revealing the greatest light, demonstrating what is best with humanity. This is the story of Timepiece.

Simon and Schuster
April 3, 1912. "Is this life, to grasp joy only to fear its escape? The price of happiness is the risk of losing it." So reads one of the many wise entries in David Parkin's diary in Timepiece, which traces the miraculous lives of David and his wife MaryAnne as they discover the power of love, loyalty, forgiveness -- and a long-forgotten keepsake that will change the fate of their family for eternity.

Prequel to The Christmas Box. I didn't like it as well, although I enjoyed learning the backstory.
