Product description

The Clifton Chronicles is Jeffrey Archer's most ambitious work in four decades as an international bestselling author. The epic tale of Harry Clifton's life begins in 1919, in the backstreets of Bristol. His father was a war hero, but it will be twenty-one tumultuous years before Harry discovers the truth about how his father really died and if, in fact, he even was his father. Only Time Will Tell takes a cast of memorable characters from the ravages of the Great War to the outbreak of the Second World War, when Harry must decide whether to take his place at Oxford, or join the fight against Hitler's Germany. In Jeffrey Archer's masterful hands, you will be taken on a journey that you won't want to end, even after you turn the last page of this unforgettable yarn, because you will be faced with a dilemma that neither you, nor Harry Clifton could ever have anticipated.

Could not put this book down. Typical Archer. No wonder he as sold 250 million books. He is just a superb writer and this book is an excelllent example of the mans talent. Have read two and eagerly await part three

By Judith Roycroft 05 Apr 2012 3

Have just read 'Cynthia's' review of the sequel to this book. Only Time Will Tell was very interesting in the beginning but as it wore on it was fairly run of the mill. Certainly the ending cheesed me off no end! Like Cynthia said about Sins of the Father, this first in the trilogy is also designed to make you buy the follow-up. I'd love it if Jeffrey Archer went back to the likes of Kane and Abel. Now that was a superb story.
