Publisher's Summary

On the heels of the international best seller Only Time Will Tell, Jeffrey Archer picks up the sweeping story of the Clifton Chronicles….

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. When Bradshaw dies in the night, Harry seizes on the chance to escape his tangled past and assumes his identity.

But on landing in America, he quickly learns the mistake he has made, when he discovers what is awaiting Bradshaw in New York. Without any way of proving his true identity, Harry Clifton is now chained to a past that could be far worse than the one he had hoped to escape.

    "Couldn't stop listening!"

    The Narrator's were great at differentiating the characters. It was already a good story line but I think I enjoyed listening more then I would if I had read it myself.

    "enjoyable book - narrator can be annoying"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes - entertaining story


    How could the performance have been better?

    there are a couple of narrators, and for the most part they are ok. however, when the female narrator starts trying to imitate an American accent, it is unbelievably bad and painful to listen to. I'd prefer the narrators to simply read the book without trying to come up with separate voices for the different characters.

    "the joy of listening"

    When I discovered audio cassettes, I was thrilled, then audible books completed the pleasure and I was able to retire my Fisher Price tape recorder.

    "Even the best families can have bad apples"

    Loved the story line and WW1 time period. Brought to life tragedies of war and family secrets. Persevering Emma saved the day, but what happens next?

    "Wonderful Read"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this presentation. I loved Emma's adventure trying to find the love of her life. As a sequel this book strove to answer questions asked in the first book of the series.

    "The American accents were horrible"

    The story was not as good as the first book but it would have been fine if it were not for the terrible renditions of American accents especially by the woman.
