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.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Harry Clifton is such a gifted boy that nearly the entire city of Bristol rallies to help him realise his incredible potential and overcome the pitfalls of poverty and the cloud surrounding his father’s World War I battlefield death. Bestselling novelist Jeffrey Archer—a former Member of Parliament in the U.K.—shepherds us along effortlessly from cliffhanger to cliffhanger, hooking us into this historical family saga. The first book in the Clifton Chronicles has Downton Abbey–like charm, setting up the series’ central themes: coming-of-age struggles and triumphs, class divisions and the dramatic consequences of letting lies run wild.
Only time will tell
Not a bad plot and a different ending but it’s written in the language for a 10 year old child and therefore disappointing.
