KlappentextMy real name, no one remembers.
The truth about that summer, no one else knows.
1862: A group of young artists led by the talented Edward Radcliffe descends upon Birchwood Manor. 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.
2017: Archivist Elodie Winslow uncovers two seemingly unrelated items: a sepia photograph of an enigmatic woman in Victorian clothing, and an artist?s sketchbook containing a drawing of a bewitching manor house. Tantalized, Elodie is determined to find out more.
The Clockmaker?s Daughter is a kaleidoscopic story of memory and murder, of love and loss. And flowing through its pages is a woman who stands outside time, whose name has been forgotten by history, but who has watched it all unfold . . .
?An ambitious, complex, compelling historical mystery with a fabulous cast of characters. This is Kate Morton at her very best? Kristin Hannah, author of The Nightingale
ZusatztextMorton knows how to eke out tantalizing secrets and drama
ZusammenfassungFrom the bestselling author of The House at Riverton and The Secret Keeper, Kate Morton brings us her dazzling sixth novel, The Clockmaker's Daughter.
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.
