While her work has appeared in many journals and anthologies, The Shadow Keeper marks the appearance of O'Brien's first full-length collection. She explores the major themes of family and personal relationships, the hallmarks of her work. Her style is honest and direct, calling for a similar response in the reader. Her poetry is at once accessible and relevant. In The Shadow Keeper we look at relationships from the perspectives of different generations: a mother's concerns for her daughter, a daughter's rebellion against her parents, and the changing viewpoints of a child grown into adulthood.

While still a young boy Tagan confesses to his parents that he can see into the beautiful world of Quanna Eresse.

But Tagan comes to learn that those in Quanna Eresse have been waiting for this moment to end a conflict with the Draepkos that started long ago in the pages of history lost to time. The Draepkos are also aware of Tagan’s ability and are terrified that he learn the truth of things and open the eyes of those they have enslaved for it will spell the end of the tyrannical, oppressed world they worked so hard to create. There is no way they are about to let that happen. The Draepkos decide to keep Tagan under wraps and induct him into the service of Lozan and the Citadel he commands in the hopes that kept away from the citizenry of Brankin Huoh they can control Tagan. Tagan is freed from the clutches of the Citadel by Braulor, a half-brother he didn’t know he had and together they flee the pursuit of the Citadel guards and attempt to join Braulor’s clan far from the clutches of the Citadel. On their escape from the Citadel Tagan is almost killed and while unconscious he is visited by Meyu Kwi a mysterious ambassador who imparts to Tagan the real history of Quanna Eresse and Brankin Huoh and why they are two separate worlds now. How it is that Tagan can see into Quanna Eresse while others cannot. More importantly he tells Tagan that all of mankind should be a part of the peaceful splendor that is Quanna Eresse and how Tagan can fix the fractured worlds of the Draepkos’ creation. The fear of change extends beyond the low level enforcers however and the scent of freedom wafts up the chain of command, extending to those that hide in the shadows; to the real power brokers that keep humanity under their boot and the thought of losing control makes them quake and they pull out all the stops to find him. With the promise of change in the air there are many who wish to make a grab at the reins of control and like the vegetables in a boiling pot of stew, one by one they come from the shadows to join in the hunt for Tagan. Each of them driven by their own agenda and their own vision of a future of their creation. They all want the same thing and they know Tagan has the been told where to find it. They all want to learn the Prophecy of the Amber Eye.

Vittorio Ferraro is a man whose family loyalty knows no bounds. He would die for his siblings and the people they love, but what he really wants is to start a family of his own. Deep down, Vittorio has always known finding a woman who could ride shadows would be nearly impossible—let alone one who could accept his particular needs—and he never expected to find her in the middle of a kidnapping.… Grace Murphy has always been drawn to Vittorio Ferraro—or at least to the billionaire’s public bad-boy persona. Now that she’s under his protection and the sole focus of his intense caring, she can’t help wanting to get as close to him as possible. But Grace knows her presence is putting the entire Ferraro family in danger. Her monster of a brother will never let her go, but Vittorio has no intention of losing the woman whose shadow matches his own. Praise for Shadow Keeper “Shadow Keeper is, in a word, a keeper!

From the author who's inspired millions worldwide with books like Tuesdays with Morrie and The Five People You Meet in Heaven comes his most imaginative novel yet, The Time Keeper--a compelling fable about the first man on Earth to count the hours. The man who became Father Time. In Mitch Albom's exceptional work of fiction, the inventor of the world's first clock is punished for trying to measure God's greatest gift. He is banished to a cave for centuries and forced to listen to the voices of all who come after him seeking more days, more years. Eventually, with his soul nearly broken, Father Time is granted his freedom, along with a magical hourglass and a mission: a chance to redeem himself by teaching two earthly people the true meaning of time. He returns to our world--now dominated by the hour-counting he so innocently began--and commences a journey with two unlikely partners: one a teenage girl who is about to give up on life, the other a wealthy old businessman who wants to live forever. To save himself, he must save them both. And stop the world to do so. Told in Albom's signature spare, evocative prose, this remarkably original tale will inspire readers everywhere to reconsider their own notions of time, how they spend it, and how precious it truly is.

In 1941, Killakeet Island of the wind-swept Outer Banks of North Carolina is home to a tiny, peaceful population of fishermen, clam stompers, oyster rakers, and a few lonely sailors of the Coast Guard. Dominating the glorious, raw beauty of the little island is the majestic Killakeet Lighthouse, which for generations has been the responsibility of one family, the Thurlows. However, Josh Thurlow, the Keeper's son, has forsworn his heritage to become the commander of the Maudie Jane, a small Coast Guard patrol boat operating off Killakeet. Josh is still tortured by guilt, seventeen years after losing his baby brother at sea. Then his life is complicated by the arrival of the beautiful Dosie Crossan, who has journeyed to lonely Killakeet to escape the outside world and perhaps find a purpose in life. While Josh's heart is stirred by the often-vexing Dosie, he continues his search for his brother, even after a wolfpack of German U-boats arrives to soak the island's beaches with blood and oil. One of the U-boats is captained by Otto Krebs, a famed and ruthless undersea warrior. Krebs, a man also scarred by lost love, comes to Killakeet, however, with more than torpedoes and plans for war: He may also have the answer to the mystery that haunts Josh Thurlow. The Keeper's Son is a rousing, romantic tale of the power of the human heart forever searching for redemption.
