あらすじ・解説

Once London's top thief, Barclay Pearce has turned his back on his life of crime and now uses his skills for a nation at war. But not until he rescues a clockmaker's daughter from a mugging does he begin to wonder what his future might hold. 

Evelina Manning has constantly fought for independence, but she certainly never meant for it to inspire her fiance to end the engagement and enlist in the army. When the intriguing man who saved her returns to the Manning residence to study clockwork repair with her father, she can't help being interested. 

But she soon learns that nothing with Barclay Pearce is as simple as it seems. As 1915 England plunges ever deeper into war, the work of an ingenious clockmaker may give England an unbeatable military edge - and Germany realizes it as well. Evelina's father soon finds his whole family in danger - and it may just take a reformed thief to steal the time they need to escape.

Wonderfully add in a great series

Each one of the series just gets better and better! This one was rather interesting finding more information on some of the main characters throughout the series. Wonderfully done. Couldn't stop once i started. A must read very enjoyable from start to finish.

Beyond fabulous

Oh how this book was worth the wait! It just spoke to my spirit and entertained me on every level. Like the other two books in the series I will listen to this over and over again. Bravo Rosanna M. White and Liz Pearce! I wish this wasn’t the end! There is so much more to tell!
Some books just feed your soul… Sigh… Thank You, thank you.

Hours Listening, Well Spent

Absolutely LOVED it! Roseanna White has created an adventure filled masterpiece! Mystery, intrigue, war and a wonderful family. One of my favorite paragraphs; "But family isn't blood-you know that. It should be, but it isn't, not always. Family is choice. Love."
These words touch my heart in ways I cannot express. There is a message of faith, new faith for Barclay, learning to trust in something other than the street smarts he learned as a means to survive. I loved seeing this and the example he sets for the family.
Barclay meets, Evelina Manning saving her from a mugging. No spoilers from me. You must listen to or read their story yourself. I've done both.(Read the paperback and listened to the Audible version.)
The narrator is, once again, fantastic! I'm so glad the same person was used for the series.
I highly recommend this book!

Perfect

This book! This series, these characters! Shadows Over England by Roseanna M. White now officially ranks among my all-time favorite series, and Roseanna is officially one of my favorite authors. Her writing is superb. In An Hour Unspent, about a clockmaker's daughter, I loved all the clock/watch and time metphors and themes she wove in. For all of you who told me this book is your favorite in the series, and that Barclay is your favorite hero of the three--I get it! The redemption arcs in all three books are exquisite. In An Hour Unspent, the action and characterization are a perfect blend, and the amount of romance was just right. I can't say enough good about this novel and series.

Also-the narrator, Liz Pearce, is phenomenal. I'm going to see what else she's done and listen to her more.

Stunning ending to the trilogy

I love that each book of the trilogy, essentially stands alone.
This story was narrated well, and it was great to hear the father figures points of view. interesting takes on the war I hadn't anticipated throughout the series.

Barclay fan

I love Barclay! This was just as exciting and heartfelt as the others in this series but even better because Barclay gets to live it. He finally finds people who respect and love him both in spite of and because of his past. The family grows and changes yet remains the same warm, welcoming, inclusive bunch. So good.

Excellence!

I really enjoyed this 3 book series! The characters in all three books are delightful and it is exciting to see how God touches each of their lives in each of their stories. I love how she introduces a character and expands on their stories in each of the three books. I also know that we see these characters in some of her other books also taking place during wartime London in WW1. Bravo!!

Wonderful series

This is a wonderful addition to the other books in the series. This story continued on the path of excitement and thrill and intrigue along with love. This book proved to be a great continuation in the series holding back nothing for the reader. I loved the twists and turns and the new characters that came in to this book, I enjoyed it completely.
