Only Time Will Tell is the first installment of five in the Clifton Chronicles, featuring Harry Clifton who is on a mission to learn the truth about his parentage.
Summary Of The Book
Only Time Will Tell begins as a coming-of-age novel, but soon turns into a story featuring lies and deception.
The events of Only Time Will Tell span two decades, mainly between 1920 and 1940. Set in Bristol, England, it follows the story’s main protagonist Harry Clifton, who is destined to work on the docks until fate hands him a new lease. One day, while on the verge of being expelled from school, his ability to sing well is noticed by his teachers. After passing a gruelling, 3-part test, Harry joins the school choir. It is when Harry discovers Old Jack that the story takes a different turn.
Harry learns that it is Old Jack who could solve the mystery surrounding his father’s disappearance. However, Old Jack refuses to budge from his silence, leaving a cloud of mystery and unanswered questions over Harry’s head. Nevertheless, Old Jack befriends Harry, and tutors him, which would help him gain admission into a posh school. Meanwhile, Harry’s mother secures a better-paying job at a hotel, and feels relieved that she is now able to afford Harry’s new school’s expenses.
Before starting at the new school, Harry reveals to Old Jack about his desperation to learn about his father. He informs him that the date of his birth and the date of his father's death do not coincide. It is at this time that Old Jack reveals the names of two individuals who could help Harry solve the mystery of his father’s disappearance.
Readers will follow Harry’s journey as he tries to learn about the mystery surrounding his father’s disappearance and how he deals with his own problems as he enters manhood. Only Time Will Tell quickly became an international bestseller, holding the number one position for twelve weeks in India, and selling out on the day it was released.

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.
