What's It All About?

The Clifton Chronicles is the extraordinary five-part story of one man’s life over the course of a hundred years, taking in the major events of the 20th and 21st centuries and exploring the timeless themes of love, family and honour and how even a single existence can change the world. The first two novels, Only Time Will Tell and The Sins of the Father, take a cast of memorable characters from the ravages of the Great War to the opulence of 1940s New York, and follow Harry Clifton as he fights for survival amidst the perils of war and the betrayal of friends to triumph and win the hand of Emma Barrington. And in the brand new novel, Best Kept Secret, Harry is now a bestselling novelist and has built a new life with Emma and their son Sebastian. As they begin their married life together, they face danger and disloyalty not only from within the Barrington family but from a shady figure from Harry’s past as the mesmerizing saga brings the reader into a beautifully recreated 1960s and hurtles towards a dramatic and unforeseen ending.

New York, 1939. Tom Bradshaw is arrested for first degree murder. He stands accused of killing his brother. When Sefton Jelks, a top Manhattan lawyer, offers his services for nothing, penniless Tom has little choice but to accept his assurance of a lighter sentence. After Tom is tried, found guilty and sentenced, Jelks disappears, and the only way for him to prove his innocence would be to reveal his true identity – something that he has sworn never to do in order to protect the woman he loves.
