In the summer of 1862, a group of young artists plans to spend a month in creativity at Birchwood Manor. But by the time their stay is over, one woman is dead, one woman has disappeared, and a priceless heirloom is missing.

One hundred and fifty years later, Elodie Winslow uncovers a leather satchel containing a sepia photograph of a woman in Victorian clothing and a drawing of Birchwood Manor. The objects hold a familiarity and mystery for her, though she does not know why.

In The Clockmaker's Daughter, Kate Morton—bestselling author of The House at Riverton and The Secret Keeper—weaves a captivating mystery told by multiple voices across time, but the voice of one woman who has watched it all unfold stands outside of time: Birdie Bell, the clockmaker's daughter.
