Only Time Will Tell

Where will the road of life lead,
Plans of destiny surely no one can read,
Because few things,
Only time will tell..

Will success be kissing the feet,
Or failure will leave a blank sheet,
A few things,
Only time will tell..

Will the friendship be forever,
Or forgotten with excuses not so clever,
A few things,
Only time will tell..

Will love find it’s way,
Or life will be black white and grey,
A few things,
Only time will tell..

Will happiness be forever to keep,
Or will sorrow sink in deep,
A few things,
Only time will tell..

Only Time Will Tell – 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, 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.Only Time Will Tell (The Clifton Chronicles, #1)
