I want to thank Fictionophile for letting me post this. She recently made a post about a series she started and loved, but never had a chance to finish and I wanted to share mine. You can click on the banner here to follow her blog:
Here’s my series that I started and LOVED, but have yet to finish-Only Time Will Tell( The Clifton Chronicles #1) by Jeffrey Archer
Genre: Historical Fiction, fiction & literature
What it’s about:
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, but he learns about life on the docks from his uncle, who expects Harry to join him at the shipyard once he’s left school. But then an unexpected gift wins him a scholarship to an exclusive boys’ school, and his life will never be the same again.
As he enters into adulthood, Harry 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 who spent his whole life on the docks, or the firstborn son of a scion of West Country society, whose family owns a shipping line?
This introductory novel in Archer’s ambitious series The Clifton Chronicles includes a cast of colorful characters and takes us from the ravages of the Great War to the outbreak of the Second World War, when Harry must decide whether to take up a place at Oxford or join the navy and go to war with Hitler’s Germany. From the docks of working-class England to the bustling streets of 1940 New York City, Only Time Will Tell takes readers on a journey through to future volumes, which will bring to life one hundred years of recent history to reveal a family story that neither the reader nor Harry Clifton himself could ever have imagined.

I was recommended this book by a fellow Goodreads member, and had it on my TBR list for a really long time (like really long. We’re talking a couple of years). I wasn’t even sure if I’d enjoy it, but was bored one day and decided to read it. Omg. I fell in love with it.
I absolutely loved how Jeffrey Archer broke down his chapters by character. Every time one chapter ended, I kept wanting to know more about what was going on with that particular character.
I won’t spoil the ending, but let’s just say that it gets even more interesting. In fact, I think it will be even better than the first book!
Do you have a series that you’ve started, LOVED it, but haven’t finished?
