Clockmaker's Daughter (Morton) - Book Reviews

Book Reviews
(Starred review) Morton explores the tangled history of people and place in her outstanding, bittersweet sixth novel.… At the novel’s emotional core …is the intersection of lives across decades, united …by a shared experience.… [B]rilliantly told.
Publishers Weekly

Elodie Winslow gets shivers when she discovers the photograph of a woman in Victorian garb…. What's her connection to Oxfordshire's Birchwood Manor, where in 1862 …a summer of creative fun… ended tragically? [M]ultilayered, sink-in-it appeal.
Library Journal

The ratcheting between eras… [is] challenging, while the powerful theme of bereft childhood gets lost…. [A] leisurely and meditative read, with lush settings, meticulous period detail, and slowly unfurling enigmas …[but] overpopulated and overworked.
