The truth about that summer, no one else knows. 1862: A group of young artists led by the talented Edward Radcliffe descends upon Birchwood Manor. 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. 2017: Archivist Elodie Winslow uncovers two seemingly unrelated items: a sepia photograph of an enigmatic woman in Victorian clothing, and an artist's sketchbook containing a drawing of a bewitching manor house. Tantalized, Elodie is determined to find out more.
The Clockmaker's Daughter is a kaleidoscopic story of memory and murder, of love and loss. And flowing through its pages is a woman who stands outside time, whose name has been forgotten by history, but who has watched it all unfold . . .
