Archer is back and this time the Clifton Chronicles have got a lot more adventurous, dramatic and almost a rollercoaster of a novel. This is the kind of book which can be read in one sitting and over one weekend and perhaps even in one night.
“Be Careful What You Wish For” is the fourth instalment in the Chronicles and it is way better than the other three. The book further talks of the lives of Sebastian, Harry and Emma Clifton along with the Barringtons.
The book like any other Archer has a lot of twists and turns which only works for the reader, and helps him or her in turning the pages with bated breath.
Be Careful What You Wish For is a best-selling suspense novel from master storyteller Jeffrey Archer. The fourth installment of The Clifton Chronicles, the book continues with Henry Clifton's story and follows the Clifton and Barrington families into the sixties.
Summary of the Book
When Harry and Emma Clifton hear about their son Sebastian's car accident, they rush to the hospital unsure whether it was their son who died or his best friend Bruno. Meanwhile, Don Pedro schemes to install Major Alex Fisher into Ross Buchanan's seat as the chairman of the Barrington Shipping Company, a seat that Emma desires following Buchanan's forced retirement. The Barrington family firm is threatened by Pedro's intentions just as the firm stands to build its new luxury liner, the MV Buckingham. In London, Harry and Emma's adopted daughter finds love in the Slade Academy of Art. However all delight at the news of the wedding vanishes when an old friend, Lady Virgina Fenwick, appears. Events take a turn when a hitherto unknown Yorkshireman, Cedric Hardcastle, takes a place in the board of Barrington's firm, changing the lives of both families.

All of Kali and Ponna's efforts to conceive a child-from prayers to penance, potions to pilgrimages-have been in vain. Despite being in a loving and sexually satisfying relationship, they are relentlessly hounded by the taunts and insinuations of the people around them. Ultimately, all their hopes and apprehensions come to converge on the chariot festival in the temple of the half-female god Ardhanareeswara and the revelry surrounding it. Everything hinges on the one night when rules are relaxed and consensual union between any man and woman is sanctioned. This night could end the couple's suffering and humiliation. But it will also put their marriage to the ultimate test. Acutely observed, One Part Woman lays bare with unsparing clarity a relationship caught between the dictates of social convention and the tug of personal anxieties, vividly conjuring an intimate and unsettling portrait of marriage, love and sex.
