Author Info
Jeffrey Archer
Jeffrey Archer was educated in Oxford at Wellington School and Brasenose College, during which time he represented Great Britain as a world-class sprinter. He was elected a member of the House of Commons representing Louth in 1969, becoming its youngest member. He stepped down from his post in 1974 with financial troubles brought about by failed investments. He began writing thrillers to help overcome some of his debts, starting with "Not A Penny More, Not A Penny Less", which became an immediate success. In 1985 he was appointed deputy chairman of the Conservative Party and in 1992 joined the House of Lords. His political thrillers have become international bestsellers, with millions of copies sold.
From the Publisher
Editors Note 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 ArcherThe 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 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.
Annotation The first in a planned five-book series called the Clifton Chronicles, ONLY TIME WILL TELL introduces readers to Harry Clifton, a British boy who seems destined to toil, like the other male members of his family, on the Bristol docks. With the intervention of his teachers, however, Harry, a gifted choral singer, wins admission to a prestigious prep school; his devoted mother, Maisie, waits on teashop tables (and later turns to prostitution) in order to afford the fees. This first installment covers the years between 1920 and the start of World War II and chronicles a mystery surrounding Harry's parentage (is he really the son of a poor dockworker or the rightful heir to a shipping fortune), his friendship with the wealthy Giles Barrington, and his confusion about whether to enroll at Oxford or join the British Navy.
