The Clockmaker’s Daughter by Kate Morton

kate morton clockmakers daughter

A rich, spellbinding new novel from the author of The Lake House–the story of a love affair and a mysterious murder that cast their shadows across generations, set in England from the 1860s until the present day.

My real name, no one remembers.
The truth about that summer, no one else knows.

In the summer of 1862, a group of young artists led by the passionate and talented Edward Radcliffe descends upon Birchwood Manor on the banks of the Upper Thames. Their plan: to spend a secluded summer month in a haze of inspiration and creativity. But by the time their stay is over, one woman has been shot dead while another has disappeared; a priceless heirloom is missing; and Edward Radcliffe’s life is in ruins.

Over one hundred and fifty years later, Elodie Winslow, a young archivist in London, uncovers a leather satchel containing two seemingly unrelated items: a sepia photograph of an arresting-looking woman in Victorian clothing, and an artist’s sketchbook containing the drawing of a twin-gabled house on the bend of a river.

Why does Birchwood Manor feel so familiar to Elodie? And who is the beautiful woman in the photograph? Will she ever give up her secrets?

Told by multiple voices across time, The Clockmaker’s Daughter is a story of murder, mystery, and thievery, of art, love and loss. And flowing through its pages like a river, is the voice of a woman who stands outside time, whose name has been forgotten by history, but who has watched it all unfold: Birdie Bell, the clockmaker’s daughter.

Sounds good! The publication date is October 9, 2018.

Her other books are all getting ridiculously good reviews. She has a lot to pick from.

If you enter the Goodreads giveaway event, good luck! Let me know if you win.

Are you interested in some free historical fiction – here is a link to that page on Amazon. (So weird!! This link does not work from my smartphone. It brings me to the paid list. Frustrating! I can see the free list from my laptop.)

Happy Friday – New Job

Happy Friday!

I started a new job this week. Wow, I’ve had about 25 jobs in my life time. Yuck. I don’t do well with stress and that is usually why I leave a position. Recently I found a super low stress job. One problem:

Low stress = low pay.

But I’m ok with that!!

A Great Creepy Novel

I’m sure all of you have heard of Shirley Jackson. She wrote the book The Haunting of Hill House.

If you haven’t read it, I encourage you to do so. There are no monsters or gore, just freaky goodness.

Speaking if freaky, Shirley Jackson also wrote We Have Always Lived in the Castle. I recently listened to this in audiobook form using the Hoopla app. Oh my goodness such great writing. Such amazing writing of messed up characters.

Link to that book on Amazon

Here are a few more ways to get ARCs:

1. Amazon has a ‘coming soon’ listing. You can politely request an ARC from these authors or publishers. See them all here:
