Book Review - The Clockmaker's Daughter by Kate Morton
Old fashioned clocks required winding. Today we spring forward or backward.
In Kate Morton's The Clockmaker's Daughter, at times you'll wonder if time is spinning out of control. Back in time to Edward, Lily, Lucy. Forward to Elodie, Pippa, Jack, and Alistair. And in between to Lauren, Juliet, Tip. So many layers - I cannot begin to describe this book except to say you must keep turning the pages.
Opening blurb - We came to Birchwood Manor because Edward said that it was haunted. It wasn't, not then, but it's a dull man who lets truth stand in the way of a good story, and Edward was never that.
So it wasn't haunted then....
Summer 2017. Summer 1928. Passion, love, jealousy, and more. Family dynamics, family troubles, hidden family secrets.
Trust me. Kate Morton writes a rousing, captivating book. Ignore your clock or schedule - you'll get lost in The Clockmaker's Daughter. What is time, anyway?
