Description

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Jeffrey Archer
The sweeping saga of the Cliftons—across generations, from Europe to America, through heartache and rivalry and triumph—is about to reach its stunning conclusion. Harry Clifton’s story began in 1920, as a dock worker in England, and now he is set to write his magnum opus. As he reflects on his days, the lives of his family continue to unfold, unravel, and intertwine in ways no one could have imagined . . .
Harry’s wife Emma, who just completed her time at the Bristol Royal Infirmary, receives a surprise call from Margaret Thatcher. Meanwhile, Giles Barrington discovers a shocking truth about his wife, Karin. Sebastian Clifton becomes chairman of Farthings Kaufman bank, but only after Hakim Bishara’s abrupt resignation. Sebastian’s daughter Jessica is expelled from school, but her aunt Grace comes to the rescue. And Lady Virginia, who is set to flee the country to avoid her creditors, finds an opportunity to clear her debts after the Duchess of Hertford dies—and a way to finally trump the Cliftons and Barringtons.

    The last book of the Clifton Chronicles was on my IPad waiting to be read for some time! I resisted until this past weekend in the early days of April, 2017. Archer has done it again! One of the best books, I've read in a long time! The end of the story filled me with tears because over all the novels, I had come to know and love all of the various characters. When an author is able to bring his characters to life and leave a lasting memory, I would say that he has done his job. I have hopes that Archer will soon have another novel that I can sink myself into and cry as they do or triumph over adversity. Excellent work!

    What an amazing series. A treat to read but I would suggest not reading them too quickly, as you will find yourself so invested in these characters that you will miss them as I do now.
