    How to describe a book like The Clockmaker?s Daughter by Kate Morton? The story itself is delicate, like spun sugar. It is timeless, not bound by a single story thread, but comprised of a tangle of threads that weave backwards and forwards like the winding of a clock. In that way, Th...

    When it comes to an author like Kate Morton readers should be well aware that they will find great writing when picking up a new book and that was still the case with The Clockmaker?s Daughter. However, even with lovely writing sometimes things just don?t work for some readers and ...

    First of all, I want to say that I am a HUGE Kate Morton fan. I have loved pretty much every book she has written, and I have recommended her books to so many people. That said, The Clockmaker's Daughter is a major disappointment. I could barely finish it and only kept going because it...

    Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for a free, electronic ARC of this novel received in exchange for an honest review. Kate Morton returns with her new novel, ?The Clockmaker?s Daughter?. Of course, being Kate Morton, she delights a reader with powerful, descriptive imag...

    3.5 stars This book contains so many of the elements I have come to expect and love in a Kate Morton story but unfortunately it takes awhile to get to see everything in play. The first 75 pages or so are the weakest in my opinion and it wasn't until about the halfway mark when I fel...
