Only Time Will Tell: The Clifton Chronicles 1 | Jeffrey Archer
The first book in the internationally bestselling Clifton Chronicles from master storyteller Jeffrey Archer"I was utterly hooked. It was an absurdly enjoyable read." Anthony Horowitz, Daily TelegraphThe epic tale of Harry Clifton's life begins in 1919, in the backstreets of Bristol. His father was a war hero, but it will be twenty-one tumultuous years before Harry discovers the truth about how his father really died and if, in fact, he even was his father.Only Time Will Tell takes a cast of memorable characters from the ravages of the Great War to the outbreak of the Second World War, when Harry must decide whether to take his place at Oxford, or join the fight against Hitler's Germany.In Jeffrey Archer's masterful hands, you will be taken on a journey that you won't want to end, even after you turn the last page of this unforgettable yarn, because you will be faced with a dilemma that neither you, nor Harry Clifton could ever have anticipated.Only Time Will Tell is part of The Clifton Chronicles series, but can be enjoyed as a stand-alone novel.THE CLIFTON CHRONICLES SERIESBOOK 1: Only Time Will TellBOOK 2: The Sins of the FatherBOOK 3: Best Kept SecretBOOK 4: Be Careful What You Wish ForBOOK 5: Mightier Than The SwordBOOK 6: Cometh The Hour

What an amazing piece of storytelling. Throughout the entire book I felt like I was simply watching a movie. The story was told at a decent pace, gripping plotlines and some amazing character building. Looking forward to the second installment of the series.

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 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...

Jeffrey Archer is the best storyteller. His Clifton Chronicle are my choice for #FictionFriday. The whole series is a 5 star read. It is a great family saga. The 7 books cover the period from 1920s until the early 1990s covering the life of Harry Clifton. Books should be read in order.

The Clifton Chronicles is a truly cracking series. 7 books that are highly addictive and left me with more than a tear in my eye! It may not be the best literature ever, but Jeffrey Archer certainly knows how to tell a cracking yarn with some lovable and some not so lovable (dastardly) characters. #noteworthynovember #time

aschermetz So funny, I was just looking at my audible shelf and came across the first one. I loved it but for some reason never kept going. Must pick these back up!!! 2y
Andrew65 @aschermetz I think I read all 7 over about six months. 2y
aschermetz @Andrew65 That is the mark of a good series!! 2y
Andrew65 @aschermetz I also felt bereaved when the series was finished! 2y

Well worth the wait, great story telling but oh man the cliffhanger ending was the mother of all cliffhangers...unbelievable! 👀 So glad I waited until the series was completed because all that waiting in between each book would of been excruciating and interminable! 😳 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ of 5 ☺️

This is the first book in Archer's six novel Clifton Chronicles. It was a highly enjoyable, although somewhat predictable, read. I'm looking forward to continuing this series. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Andrew65 Because of the cliff hangers these books are very addictive. Jeffrey Archer may not be the best writer ever but this is still a very enjoyable series. 2y
Melissa_J @Andrew65 he writes in such a way as to make you want to keep reading. I won't wait for long before starting book two. 2y
Andrew65 @Melissa_J I read all 7 in just over a year and that was with g having to wait a few months for the seventh one to be published. Real tear jerker in places. 2y
Melissa_J @Andrew65 there are seven books? I'd best keep watch for that one. 2y

I have patiently waited for several years for this series to be completed.. only about halfway through this one and all I'm saying is, " Good and wonderful things really do come to those who wait!" ??

Whipped through this book over the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it! Archer is the kind of writer who knows how to sin a yarn and ills the reader in. I found it hard to put down and can't wait to read the 2nd in the series! (Read on my Kindle)

Andrew65 This series is totally addictive, read all seven and killed me waiting for the seventh and final one to be published. Loved the whole series. 3y
Miss_Kim I think you encouraged me to start with the first one since I had bought the second a few weeks ago at a book sale. Very glad I did! Great story telling! Thanks @Andrew65 ! 3y
Andrew65 @Miss_Kim Glad you enjoyed it, especially if I pushed for the series. 😊 3y

Every single book in Archer's Clifton Chronicles ends on a cliffhanger. Lucky for me, I started the series when five of the seven books were already out, so I only had to wait twice to see what happened. #bestcliffhangers #BookLove17

mom2bugnbee I did exactly the same thing! Didn't realize it was a series when I started them! 3y
Bookladylinda I love this series! 3y

This series by Jeffrey Archer covers several generations of the Clifton clan. Murder, love, intrigue...it's all there, deftly woven together with the relevant chronological historical events. I've listened to all seven books of this sprawling family saga on audio and all were narrated by Alex Jennings. I can't recommend this narrator enough. #fiction #series

Suzze I love this series. I don't do audio, but I've enjoyed them all. The last one is on the hold shelf at the library waiting for me. 3y

Time to start my Audible freebie. I don't think I have ever read a Jeffrey Archer book.

I never read a much as I think I will on vacation. I've hardly touched this book since Sunday. Today there will be plenty of reading with lots of staring at the ocean breaks.
