An utterly delightful read, just what we need at the moment. Well done Sarah.

This enchanting book is a vivid imagining of a family's history seen through the eyes of the grandfather clock itself. Sarah Akhtar has produced a work that clearly means a great deal to her personally, but is interesting and absorbing for the reader. I loved the many photos and the family tree, all of which added to the pleasure. A very nicely produced book.
by Sue Gotley
Born 1947 in Leamington Spa. Traditional single sex education but always escaping into a book or writing stories. Career path into the NHS - nurse, midwife then practice nurse. Married a doctor - surprise, surprise! Now live in Stoke on Trent.
Retirement in 2004 and straight into a creative writing group, first a class I paid for and later a group which evolved from the classes.
Short stories, poems, all great fun and continually inventing stories when out and about.
Now I have a granddaughter who loves stories so, who knows where that will lead.
My book combines my interest in family history with my passion for making things up!
