Ever since I read "Only Time Will Tell," the first in the "Clifton Chronicles, I was waiting eagerly for "The Sins of the father:" and it did not disappoint. Archer takes the story of the Barringtons and the Cliftons along new and previously uncharted territory in what is a gripping novel.

I turned the pages fast and furiously only to find that the ending is again a cliffhanger and only time will tell!
