At Clockmakers Cottage on the rugged Lancashire coastline, Amy Macfarlene, her younger brother and sister, Edmund and Vicky, together with Aunt Anne Shawcross, are busy making ready for their sister Fanny's wedding - and apprehensive lest their father's packet, Jenet Rae, doesn't sail home to Monks Quay in time for Ramsay Macfarlene to walk his eldest daughter down the aisle at All Hallows. Something other than that is causing Amy sleepless nights, though. While working as a maid at Whiteladies Grange, home of the wealthy and powerful Paslew family, Amy overheard a bitter argument between Fanny's betrothed, Theodore Buxton, and his younger brother, Nicholas . . . Fearful for her sister's future happiness -- and indeed for the safety and well-being of the whole Macfarlene family -- Amy turns to her childhood sweetheart and loyal friend, Dan Ainsworth . . .

From the bestselling author of The House at Riverton and The Secret Keeper, Kate Morton brings her trademark mix of secrets, lies, and intricately layered mysteries in The Clockmaker's Daughter. 'The perfect book to curl up with' - i newspaper My real name, no one remembers. The truth about that summer, no one else knows. In the depths of a nineteenth-century winter, a little girl is abandoned in the narrow streets of London. Adopted by a mysterious stranger, she becomes in turn a thief, a friend, a muse, and a lover. Then, in the summer of 1862, shortly after her eighteenth birthday, she retreats with a group of artists to a beautiful house on a quiet bend of the Upper Thames . . . Tensions simmer and one hot afternoon a gun-shot rings out. A woman is killed, another disappears, and the truth of what happened slips through the cracks of time. Over the next century and beyond, Birchwood Manor welcomes many newcomers but guards its secret closely – until another young woman is drawn to visit the house because of a family secret of her own . . . As the mystery of The Clockmaker’s Daughter begins to unravel, we discover the stories of those who have passed through Birchwood Manor since that fateful day in 1862. Intricately layered and richly atmospheric, it shows that, sometimes, the only way forward is through the past. '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
