APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
With both a tender touch and an ambitious sweep, Jeffrey Archer concludes his far-reaching Harry Clifton saga, which mapped over a century of seismic shifts. The drama’s well-rounded cast of characters learn that no matter what their personal goals are, life may well have other plans for them. Archer draws on everything from the Bible and Shakespeare to espionage and autobiography. His writing is heartbreaking and funny, often in the same breath—and his distinctly British outlook rings as true as the emotional finale to his much-loved series.

The Clifton Chronicles.
Never before in my 70 years have I read 7 novels in 10 days.
For all 7 episodes of this amazing journey I felt like a family member quietly observing all from a corner chair in their Sitting room.
