Book Review: Only Time Will Tell by Jeffrey Archer

If you have read Jeffery Archer before, this book is no surprise. Two boys, with different lives and opposite family backgrounds cross paths; the only thing that is common is the father. The story revolves around them and their various experiences.

"Only Time Will Tell" is a similar one. With lead protagonist Harry Clifton starting his life in a wreck of a place with a dead father (assumed so), a difficult uncle fights his way with destiny and through the help of a hard working mother and a friend (half brother), he goes out of his way to make up for destiny's decision. 

Against odds, Harry turns into a fine young man and when puberty hits in, he falls in love Emma (who later turns to be his half sister). 

Finally the truth breaks in and strong decisions are to be made. The final decision when taken, takes Harry away from everyone - his mother, friend/brother and the love of his life. 

A tragedy strikes and the lives of the characters change completely. What happens to them?

To know that, you would have to read the book! 

Even when you know what the background is, the book proves to be an interesting read. Jeffery Archer makes every book look different even when you exactly know what the character in it are upto! Cheers to him and we hope to continue enjoy his writing in years to come. 

Rating: 3.5/5
