More About The Old Man and the Watch by Jo Jewell
One small, seemingly insignificant act can change lives forever... ...for generations. For a chosen few, a pocket watch holds mysterious power over new beginnings. The watch-belonging to Morgan's brother and given to Morgan after his beloved brother's tragic death in a farming accident when they were children... ...plays an integral part in the life of the one who holds it. Kerri Perry survived a car accident, but her childhood sweetheart did not. She has lived her life as a mere existence as she carries the weight of the guilt and shame of that fateful night... ...that is, until she is bequeathed the pocket watch. She is a loner hiding from the world in her one-bedroom, third-floor apartment until the day a missed phone call changes her life forever. After noting the caller ID, Kerri returns the stranger's call. Although their initial conversation is tense, the loner and the old man who placed the original call, Morgan, develop an intimate friendship founded on the stories Morgan shares with Kerri about his early life. Once their relationship moves from infrequent phone calls to in-person meetings at Morgan's lavish estate, Kerri learns that the accident that killed her fiance... ...and shattered her life is the thread that connects her to Morgan. The old man's generosity causes Kerri's life to change abruptly once again, but this time she gains a sister in Morgan's adopted daughter, Sun Ling, as well as a new husband and a daughter of her own. With the monetary gifts provided to them by Morgan, Kerri and Sun Ling create foundations that service the local community and children who were victims of wars in a number of countries. Morgan's estate is turned into a safe haven called HOME... ...but evil threatens the safety of HOME. With secrets that won't stay hidden from the pocket watch, Kerri must try to put the pieces together, calling upon her own courage and inspiring the courage of others whose lives the pocket watch deems a new beginning... ...but will there be enough time? Tragedy, deadly secrets, and triumph color the lives the pocket watch touches. Who is the next in line to receive the pocket watch... ...and what secrets will it reveal?"
