    From the internationally best-selling author of Kane and Abel and A Prisoner of Birth comes Only Time Will Tell, the first in an ambitious new series that tells the story of one family across generations, across oceans, from heartbreak to triumph. 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"....

    C. Johnson says: "Standard Archer "class-clash". Stellar narration!!"

    What would have made Only Time Will Tell better?

    Be aware that the final book in this trilogy ends as if the last chapter was left out!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jeffrey Archer again?

    Never.


    Any additional comments?

    Definite cliffhanger and insists you buy book 2. Unfortunately, book 3 has no ending...most ridiculous fraud on a reader I've ever encountered.

    No


    What could Barbara Taylor Sissel have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Added a real plotline?


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    boring from start to finish


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Evidence of Life?

    most of them


    Any additional comments?

    the narrator had a decent style but the story was so lightweight, repetitive and boring. hopefully, no one else MISTAKES this for a mystery which is the category it was in.

    Only days before Britain declares war on Germany, Harry Clifton, hoping to escape the consequences of long-buried family secrets, and forced to accept that his desire to marry Emma Barrington will never be fulfilled, has joined the Merchant Navy. But his ship is sunk in the Atlantic by a German Uboat, drowning almost the entire crew. An American cruise liner, the SS Kansas Star, rescues a handful of sailors, among them Harry and the third officer, an American named Tom Bradshaw.

    Margaret Campbell says: "Can';t Wait for the Next One!!!"
    "Don't bother...it's the story that never ends."

    What would have made The Sins of the Father better?

    If book 3 of this so called trilogy actually had an ending. Ridiculous. Save your money but more importantly your time!


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger. No ENDING to the 3 boom series.

    Best Kept Secret opens a moment after the end of The Sins of the Father, with the resolution of the trial and the triumphant marriage of Harry Clifton and Elizabeth Barrington, finally uniting their family. Harry, now a best-selling novelist; Emma; their son, Sebastian; and orphaned Jessica make a new life for themselves, but all is not as happy and secure as it could be. Emma's brother, Giles, is engaged to a woman who may be more interested in Barrington's fortune and title than in a long and happy marriage.

    Would you try another book from Jeffrey Archer and/or Alex Jennings and Emilia Fox ?

    Never again from Mr. Archer. Yes for Jennings and fox.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Interesting story and characters BUT after buying three books in this TRILOGY (?) the ending was a total cheap CHEAT played on the reader. I've never been this angry at an 'author'. It's like the last chapter was just left out. The publisher should refund everyone's money!


    What about Alex Jennings and Emilia Fox ’s performance did you like?

    Very good.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    ANGER. Again, the first two books clearly ended with a cliffhanger but for the FINAL book in a trilogy to end without resolution is nothing short of cheating the buyer of all three books. It ended as if the LAST CHAPTER wasn't included in the recording.

    DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY OR TIME!
