From the internationally bestselling author of Kane and Abel and A Prisoner of Birth comes Only Time Will Tell, the first in an ambitious new series that tells the story of one family across generations, across oceans, from heartbreak to triumph.
The epic tale of Harry Clifton’s 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, but he learns about life on the docks from his uncle, who expects Harry to join him at the shipyard once he’s left school. But then an unexpected gift wins him a scholarship to an exclusive boys’ school, and his life will never be the same again.
As he enters into adulthood, Harry 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 who spent his whole life on the docks, or the firstborn son of a scion of West Country society, whose family owns a shipping line?
This introductory novel in Archer’s ambitious series The Clifton Chronicles includes a cast of colorful characters and takes us from the ravages of the Great War to the outbreak of the Second World War, when Harry must decide whether to take up a place at Oxford or join the navy and go to war with Hitler’s Germany. From the docks of working-class England to the bustling streets of 1940 New York City, Only Time Will Tell takes readers on a journey through to future volumes, which will bring to life one hundred years of recent history to reveal a family story that neither the reader nor Harry Clifton himself could ever have imagined.

The way Mr. Archer develops his characters is amazing.This is the first Jeffery Archer book that I read and it didn't fail to make me his fan. After this book, I bought some of his previous works (Kane and Abel) and loved those too.

amazing storyOverwhelmed by the story and representation from everyone's stand point. First time I read the Clifton series and touched by heart. Archer is a great story teller I must say, it seems everything happening in front of my eyes. This series has mystery, romance, sacrifices of a mother and great lover also ups and downs of Harry's life.

A Must ReadGuys don't just assume this masterpiece as a single story novel. This gem is among the first of the novels(5 novels) in "Clifton Chronicles".

Only Time Will Tell, indeed.I was one of the few lucky people who got to meet Jeffrey Archer in person at the book launch of Only Time Will Tell in Delhi. I remember him telling all his fans that The Clifton Chronicles will be his most ambitious project ever and to be honest, the guy has done everything a writer can to make a novel worth reading. Archer has come up with a fantastic plot and has lived up to the expatiation of his fans.
