The Clifton Chronicles: This epic tale of Harry Clifton's life begins in 1919, in the backstreets of Bristol. Harry had been told that his father was killed in the war, but it will be twenty-one tumultuous years before he discovers the truth about how his father really died - and that will lead him to want answers to questions: who was his father? Was he Arthur Clifton, a stevedore who worked in Bristol docks? Was he, in fact, even his father?

The first novel in the Clifton Chronicles, an ambitious new series that tells the story of a family across generations and oceans, from heartbreak to triumph, from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jeffrey Archer
The epic tale of Harry Clifton's life begins in 1920, with the words "I was told that my father was killed in the war." A dock worker in Bristol, Harry never knew his father and expects to continue on at the shipyard, until a remarkable gift wins him a scholarship to an exclusive boys' school, and his life will never be the same again...
"If there were a nobel prize for storytelling, Archer would win."―Daily Telegraph (London)
As Harry enters into adulthood, he finally learns how his father really died, but the awful truth only leads him to question: Was he even his father? Is he the son of Arthur Clifton, a stevedore, or the firstborn son of a scion of West Country society, whose family owns a shipping line? From the ravages of the Great War and the docks of working-class England to the streets of 1940 New York City and the outbreak of the Second World War, this is a powerful journey that will bring to life one hundred years of history to reveal a family story that neither the reader nor Harry Clifton himself could ever have imagined.
