Sixteen miles downstream from the birthplace of George Washington where the Shenandoah River comes out of the Blue Ridge carrying sycamore leaves and acorns came a gem that shone brighter than most. That gem was Linda Wails, but as providence would have it her life took as many steep drops and winding turns as did that river. The death of her father, a move to a godforsaken place with so few trees and so much sand, a bout with cancer, and an unrelenting relationship with her son Corey, left Linda no choice but to throw her hands up to the world and submit. The Time Keeper is the story of Linda's return and one last somersault down the river is required. With the North Carolina state baseball playoffs in full swing, seventeen year old Corey Wails has more important matters to attend than his mother's recent wish to make amends. To Corey, life is as simple as the game -- a fastball, a curve ball, and waste a pitch before the strike out. It is the game that Corey loves, and like a ball player who hears no chatter he tightens his blinders and races towards the finish line. But what he finds when he gets there bares no resemblance to what he had dreamed for so long. His mother's change of heart is puzzling to Corey; he wonders how such a thing occurred, how something larger than life itself crept inside the body of Linda Wails and whispered, 'It will be okay Linda, this is the natural way of things.' Linda wonders if that voice will ever reach her son. Perhaps the voice that is larger than life itself is none but our own, buried deep inside of us. One thing is certain, the Time Keeper will not be kept waiting.
