Ambitious and addictive, Only Time Will Tell is the first novel in international bestseller Jeffrey Archer’s the Clifton Chronicles begins the epic tale of Harry Clifton, a working-class boy from the docks of Bristol.

It is 1920, and against the backdrop of a world ravaged by conflict, Harry’s story begins with the words ‘I was told that my father was killed in the war’. Harry’s existence is defined by the death of his father and he seems destined to a life on the docks until a remarkable gift wins him a scholarship to an exclusive boys school and entry into a world he could never have envisaged.

Over the course of twenty years, as the Second World War and the fight against Hitler draws nearer, Harry will learn the awful truth about his father’s death and of his own connections to a powerful shipping family, the Barringtons. And in doing so, he will change his destiny forever . . .

Richly imagined and populated with remarkable characters, the Clifton Chronicles will take you on a powerful journey, bringing to life one hundred years of family history in a story neither you, nor Harry, could ever have dreamt of.

Thanks, never had a JA freebie before, now 2 come around at once! hotukdeals.com/dea…597
Thanks for this
You will end up reading all 7 books in this series.
Unusual for this to be free but good spot
You read a few of JA books and you realise that they are all repetitive. The main character is usually a white man with outstanding upbringing, great set of values and is either born very rich or in utter poverty. He will always meet a slim girl with dark hair and eyes, falling in love at first sight. There is usually a family death included in most books. The villain is also usually related to the family.

I am not suggesting there should be diversity for the sake of diversity (don't care about the PC movement) but humans in general are rarely that simple to describe and are actually far more complex.

Archer started off very well with the likes of Not a Penny More, Kane & Abel, etc but has been formulaic for many books now churning out drivel. Just my personal opinion.

I suppose they are all repetitive - even Dickens. The fourth estate was good but I have found characters and dialogue in other Archer novels to be unrealisitc. I still think he's a good writer.
Jeffrey knows all about time.
Thanks Wordsworth. Happy belated 250th birthday by the way.
i really didnt want to read this, but everyone else in the family persuaded me to, as much as i had no intention of liking anything by Archer, I have to admit, this and the other books in the series are very very good. The characterization is second to none as is the gripping way he keeps the story going.
well worth giving a go, especially for free
Thanks wordsworth

Dunno if video is available online but found the "script" of a Spitting Image sketch that half remember :

Interviewer: "So Mr. Archer, tell us about your new book..."
J. Archer: "Well, it is said that a million monkeys banging away at a million typewriters will eventually reproduce the works of Shakespeare."
Interviewer: "Quite so; and how many monkeys do you have Mr. Archer?"
J. Archer: "Just the one," (looks to ceiling) "Keep typing you little b*stard!"
