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 Telegraph

The 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.

    Loved this book. Found it easy to read, heartwarming, and just loved the story, with a twist at the end.

    This book is obviousely intended to set up an ever expanding family saga. Unfortunately the characters are sketchy and stereotypical, the narrative is predicable and episodic and the events are simplistic and improbably trite, with black and white world views, actions and outcomes. The tale glides along making use of hackneyed historical details as a frame work for a childish series of life events and decisions, none of which creat any suspense, or grab the reader's interest or concern. The sort of drivel that slides off a careless pen and is the product of a mundane mine

    I was totally disappointed with this book by Jeffery Archer. The dialogue was infantile and the plot so shallow as to be an insult to the reader who would be looking for something much better from an author of his reputation. More than waste of money this read was a waste of time.
  • Loved it! So excited to get started on the next book.

    So glad there's a whole series ahead of me!!
  • More of the same.

    If you haven't read Jeffrey Archer before, then you'll enjoy this book. Well written and engaging. If you have read his earlier works, particularly As The Crow Flies, you'll recognise similarities in his stories. This one was predictable, with characters recognizable from earlier novels, give different names in this one. Another novel with reference to Oxford, Latin and Shakespeare in-jokes you'll only get if you're read English at the aforementioned College. I'll be returning to his earlier works for a more original read.

    I have just read the first book of the Clifton Chronicles and can't wait to read the second The Sins of the Father. As with other Jeffrey Archer books there were lots of twists and turns and the characters in the book were so well portrayed that it was possible to imagine not only what they look like but also their personality and character. A great read and I have four more books to go. Excited - the housework will have to wait!!!

    I am a man of 74, and still could not stop tearing while reading the book. A marvellous book for young and old. Could not put it down until I finished it.
