3/19 The Clockmaker’s Daughter by Kate Morton
“In the depths of a 19th-century winter, a little girl is abandoned on the streets of Victorian London. She grows up to become first a thief, then an artist’s muse, and a lover. In the summer of 1862, shortly after her eighteenth birthday, she travels with a group of artists to a beautiful house on a bend of the Upper Thames. Tensions simmer and one hot afternoon a gunshot rings out. A woman is killed and another disappears. However, the truth of what happened slips through the cracks of time. Not until over a century later, when another young woman is drawn to Birchwood Manor, are its secrets finally revealed. Told by multiple voices across time, this is a novel about art and passion as well as forgiveness and loss. It illustrates that sometimes the way forward is through the past.
