- By: Kate Morton
- Narrated by: Joanne Froggatt
- Length: 17 hrs and 3 mins
In the summer of 1862, a group of young artists led by the passionate and talented Edward Radcliffe descends upon Birchwood Manor in rural Oxfordshire. 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 150 years later, Elodie Winslow, a young archivist in London, uncovers a leather satchel containing two seemingly unrelated items.

I was a bit apprehensive about this book, I love Kate Morton's books - except the last one (the lake house) which left me very disappointed. The Clockmaker's daughter was excellent and a true KM doorstopper novel with all the twists and turns and multiple timelines and perspectives one could wish for. Love it!
