About this item

Only Time Will Tell

Jeffrey Archer

The first novel in the Clifton Chronicles, an ambitious new series that tells the story of a family across generations and oceans, from heartbreak to triumph, from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jeffrey Archer

The epic tale of Harry Cliftons life begins in 1920, with the words I was told that my father was killed in the war. A dock worker in Bristol, Harry never knew his father and expects to continue on at the shipyard, until a remarkable gift wins him a scholarship to an exclusive boys school, and his life will never be the same again...

As Harry enters into adulthood, he finally learns how his father really died, but the awful truth only leads him to question: Was he even his father? Is he the son of Arthur Clifton, a stevedore, or the firstborn son of a scion of West Country society, whose family owns a shipping line? From the ravages of the Great War and the docks of working-class England to the streets of 1940 New York City and the outbreak of the Second World War, this is a powerful journey that will bring to life one hundred years of history to reveal a family story that neither the reader nor Harry Clifton himself could ever have imagined.

Customer review by RSheep

5.0 stars by RSheep

This book begins a saga that starts in England in 1919 and goes to the beginning of WW2 in this book one of four books that continue through the 1960's. As many stories begin, relations with two men confuses the parentage of our main character. Is Harry Clifton the son of a dock worker or the son of an English nobleman? This question affects Harry throughout this book even though he knows nothing of this secret. All has been compounded by the mysterious death of his dock worker father. Then one day Harry wins a marvelous scholarship to an exclusive boy's school, where he makes two best friends. One just happens to be the legitimate son of the nobleman. The boys know nothing about their possible relationship, but they are aware that Harry's presence is never welcome in his friends house. This book is written very cleverly with sections from many of the main character's points of view. We often learn things when they do, keeping the story a bit mysterious. While we are reading about Harry, we are getting history as he lives it. Definitely looking forward to reading the final three books to see how Harry fairs in his later years.
