Mystery. History. Fiction. Intersection. Love. It’s all in The Clockmaker’s Daughter, Kate Morton’s tale of relationship, murder, and art that spans multiple centuries. In the story, you will meet many characters across generations and see how their intertwining lives help to reveal the details of the murder of Fanny Brown in the 1800s.

If you take too many pauses while reading you might lose tracks of the myriad characters, but the story is engrossing enough that you don’t want to put it down, and the short chapters make it easy to keep turning pages.

What I loved about the book was the dialogue exchanged between characters that reveals the depth of what it means to be a searching human being, whether it be for answers, for truth, or for love. This book is dynamic enough that everyone can find something to love about it.
