I’ve never met anyone who didn’t like Harry, with the exception of my father, who won’t even allow his name to be mentioned in the house. A heart warming story set back in the early 1900’s which follows a young lad named Harry Clifton as he faces the many obstacles throughout his life’s journey to manhood. The book has the flavour of Follett's Century series and Rutherfurd's multi-generational novels, where the reader must pay attention not only to the story, but also the collection of characters and their nuances. But after he is expelled he gets caught up in an international incident that could put his life in jeopardy .

Old jack, another character plays a vital role in helping Harry climb up his ladder of success while sharing his wisdom and finding ways to help Harry. I rather enjoyed being addressed as ‘my lord’ by all and sundry, even if it was only for a few hours. Stan Tancock - Maisie Clifton's brother and Arthur Clifton's best friend and co-worker, a high-functioning alcoholic. This book reminded me a little of Downton Abbey and I think readers who enjoyed that series will really enjoy the clifton Chronicles.

After they had left, Mama went straight to my father’s study and I could hear raised voices, which had recently become more and more common.

Spanning the period between the world wars (roughly 1920-1940) and set in Britain, this first book traces Harry’s school career to his likelihood of entering the Navy as it seems war with Hitler is on the horizon. I normally am a little skeptical when people rave like crazy in a review, but I suppose I am now joining their ranks. The author goes to great lengths to convince us that yes, the Main Character is indeed a brilliant child/man with unseen depths and superb intellect.
