Description

I really enjoy family sagas and this was no exception with its well formed characters, a flowing and twisting tale and a little social history to keep the reader entertained. So the yardstick being as high as it is for Jeffrey, the series is still decent and worth a one-time read. I was good at making up stories, but it wasn’t long before she discovered that was all they were: stories. The first part of the book is pretty much the every cliché you read about English boarding schools: sadistic prefects, social snobbery, cruel mockery etc. Jeffrey has served five years in the House of Commons as a Member of Parliament, and thirty years as a Member of the House of Lords.

If Mr Holcombe kept his mouth shut and the ganger didn’t report me to the headmaster, I could go for days without being found out, and as long as I avoided the coal barges and was standing by the school gate at four o’clock every afternoon, my mother would never be any the wiser.With a shady authority known as the Time Police on their tail, will the Timeseekers be able to save us all? This book reminded me a little of Downton Abbey and I think readers who enjoyed that series will really enjoy the clifton Chronicles.

If I had to sum up my opinion of this book in one sentence, it would be "Honey, could you pass me the Excedrin? I received this book as a present around three or so years ago, and it has been sitting in my bookcase, possibly gathering a bit of dust, ever since.However, as my reading progressed the story became more and more redundant and predictable, and especially towards the end it felt like Jeffrey Archer included historical aspects to the story just for the sake of accentuating the history that was going on simultaneously to the characters' lives. Holcombe, his elementary school teacher; and Old Jack Tar, a Boer War hero and loner all help him, his life is changed forever. I normally am a little skeptical when people rave like crazy in a review, but I suppose I am now joining their ranks.

Maisie Clifton - Harry's mother who after sudden death of her husband Arthur, tries to make ends meet to support her family and Harry's education.They are all so vividly developed, and I found I could empathise and even relate to some of them quite easily.

It was launched by Jeffrey Archer himself in Bangalore, India in March 2011, as the beginning of a global book tour. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others.But soon they realise the problems in Royalty Protection are just the beginning as a renegade organisation has the security of the country – and the Crown – in its sights . But past encounters with an ex are never far away, and when Harry befriends Giles Barrington, his meddlesome, fraudulent father, Hugo, does his best to deny what happened between Harry’s mother and himself all those years ago. The fourth novel in the Clifton Chronicles series begins with Henry and Emma Clifton desperate to learn the fate of their son Sebastian, involved in a horrific car accident. I was not comfortable with the way the wedding was handled and thought the whole thing was melodramatic.
