Ò Read ↠´ The Sins of the Father by Jeffrey Archer Ò A pacy plot with many twists, the Clifton Chronicles go through valour, deception, greed and devotion during the Second World War.
I am really enjoying this series It has been a while since I read book 1, Only Time Will Tell, so had forgotten just how much I liked it I love the characters the women are just awesome , the family dynamics, the WWII period, all of it Archer does like to leave you hanging, though, at the end of each book It being a series, I m afraid anything I say will be spoilerish if you haven t read book 1 yet, so I ll just say that if you are considering starting another series, look into this one, the Clifton Chronicles.

4 5Fantastic Novel I loved all the characters Except Hugo, of course , I am still so nervous about what s happening Find an answer for god s sake I don t know what kind of turns the next novels are going to take I will be reading the next novel, I hope.
Lord Archer I do believe it s time to stop writing The Clifton Chronicle s second book Sins Of The Father was undoubtedly your worst work The good people are classless, brave, ingenious and courageous whereas the bad ones are class conscious, inept, upper class arrogant berks They are just rehashes of all the old books If this keeps going on you might take Chetan Bhagat s place in my heart We have read it a million times before the lower class kid who excels at everything and befriends the upper class lad whose life he transforms, how the Brits stuck it to the Germans, how the Brits are different from the Yanks I can t explain how disappointed I was with the book By the end of the book you don t freaking care of Harry s Hugo s son or not It s becoming harder and harder to believe that this was the same man who gav The second book in The Clifton Chronicles picks up where volume one, Only Time Will Tell, left off Our protagonist, Harry Clifton, has sailed to America as World War II is about to start His ship is sunk by a German U boat Harry and the ship s third officer, Tom Bradshaw, are rescued by an American cruise liner, the SS Kansas Star When Bradshaw dies Harry decides to assume his identity in order to escape his past In doing so he finds that he has gone from the frying pan into the fire Turns out that Bradshaw is wanted for the murder of his brother and Harry winds up in prison Family and friends in England are told that Harry died at sea.
Emma Barrington, Harry s true love, doesn t believe that Harry is dead Despite her privileged background she leaves their son behind, gets a job on the SS Kansas Star, and This is the second book in the series, and it is NOT a stand alone The Clifton Chronicles are, as you may have guessed, a series of books about generations of the Clifton family This one spans the period of WWII and it was interesting to see it from both the European and American sides This book may be kind of sappy, it s DEFINITELY sappy as compared to my normal reading , and all the characters are pretty much black or white, there are no grays here That said, I found it to be great fun and I will be continuing on with the series.
Loved, loved, loved this second installment of Archers Clifton Chronicles Being already invested in these characters enabled me to enjoy this eventhan the first Movin on to book three 3.
