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.
All Good things must come to an end
I have anxiously awaited each one of these books and must admit I cried at the end of this last one
Were they a bit soap Opera-ish? Were they a tad predictable? Yes to both those questions but it didn't stop me fro savoring everyone of these books.
The Story of Harry Clifton gets wrapped up. No loose ends. A happy ending of a life lived long and well.
This Was A Man
After reading the first two books in the trilogy this one was dull and extremely slow moving. Couldn't finish it.
Master story teller has done it again. Each time I think Archer has written his best, he starts another story I just can't put down. You don't just read this series you live it. Bravo!
