The Clifton Chronicles is Jeffrey Archer’s most ambitious work in four decades as an international bestselling author. The epic tale of Harry Clifton’s life begins in 1919, in the backstreets of Bristol. His father was a war hero, but it will be twenty-one tumultuous years before Harry discovers the truth about how his father really died and if, in fact, he even was his father. The first in the series, Only Time Will Tell takes a cast of memorable characters from the ravages of the Great War to the outbreak of the Second World War, when Harry must decide whether to take his place at Oxford, or join the fight against Hitler’s Germany. In Jeffrey Archer’s masterful hands, you will be taken on a journey that you won’t want to end, even after you turn the last page of this unforgettable yarn, because you will be faced with a dilemma that neither you, nor Harry Clifton could ever have anticipated.
This book is about the life of Susie Tamim, an Irish spiritual guide, psychic and Reiki Master who lives and works in Amman, Jordan. 'Only Time Will Tell', begins in Hartlepool, England on the day of the Kennedy assassination in 1963, and closes in Amman, Jordan in 2001. When Susie moved to Jordan in 1981, her life took a time path, and she discovered within herself the natural ability to heal using universal energy - Reiki. She has gained international recognition as a Reiki Master and continues her inspired work in the Holy Land, creating a network of positive energy - or a "spiritual internet" as she likes to call it - throughout the region that she hopes will one day know peace in our time.
Caitlyn has a passion for outdoor adventures. She moves with the seasons, snowboarding in the winter and rafting in the summer. Always being on the move makes it easy to keep people at a distance, which is just the way she likes it. When she finds herself caught in the chaos surrounding the whitewater of Cataclysm Rapid, she discovers a connection to the wildfire burning in the mountains. As she wrestles against nature, man, and her own fears, she learns just how important true friendship and freedom are and finds her life transformed through the power of love and faith.
What's in your barn... reminds us of who we are as created beings and inspires a purpose filled way of life. We are not deserving of the gift of life or of the benefits it brings but instead we should count ourselves privileged and blessed for God's unmerited favour. The decisions we make create our path and influence a way of life for others. We should therefore be reminded that the path of life is for every one and comes with no detours; this path is inevitable and takes us all from "the cradle to the grave."

When a friend offers her a vacation house in Maine for some relaxation, she thinks it’s the perfect chance to escape from her grim reality - for good. But fate has other plans for Susannah.

Her speech and clothing are odd, her behavior is very impertinent, and most peculiarly, she claims to be from the future. But when his withdrawn son, Corey, quickly bonds with the woman, he agrees to let her stay at his family’s estate. As Susannah gets to know the Sinclairs, she finds herself passionately attracted to Adrian and powerfully drawn to Corey. Can a woman with no future change her fate in the past? Or will the dangerous secrets lurking at Blue Hill Manor turn deadly? Sensuality Level: Sensual
