Only Time Will Tell
Reviewed by- linda (2011/09/25, 06:55 PM)
“Only Time Will Tell” is the first in a five book series - “The Clifton Chronicles”- which when complete will span a century. This installment takes place in Bristol, England and covers about 20 years or so of Harry Clifton’s life. Harry is appealing and easy to like and sympathize with. The plot as we follow his life is engaging but quite predictable; poor disadvantaged boy has special gift that propels his life forward. What makes this a gem of a book and a series to look forward to is the storytelling. Jeffrey Archer takes ordinary everyday events and weaves them into an absorbing entertaining story. He creates a wonderful cast of supporting characters that are dynamic, unique and real. He layers in family secrets and tells the story from many different perspectives, which keeps the plot fresh and moving. This is a light read that will appeal to those who enjoy character driven novels, family drama and a good story to pass the time.Back.
