An unforgettable novel that captures the power of longing, loss, and love, The Time Keepers transports us from 1979 suburban New York to war-torn Vietnam, revealing that sometimes the most unexpected friendships can save us.

“The Time Keepers is a magnificent and tender exploration of what it means to find a way back to ourselves in the wake of unimaginable loss.  With stunning honesty and compassion Richman braids the stories of four unique characters living in the aftermath of the Vietnam war. Together, this mismatched quartet sets out to answer some of life's most challenging questions: Is it possible to find a home among strangers who cannot begin to imagine our past? Can friendship and love bridge the divide of language, culture, and faith? And with enough patience and time, can we hope to heal our own wounded souls? Richman wrestles with these questions and more in this truly extraordinary story.”

– Lynda Cohen Loigman, bestselling author of The Matchmaker's Gift and The Love Elixir of Augusta Stern
