Until all is lost, nothing is found. The final element of a unique trilogy. A story in which the one that was lost will be found. Where a thief will guide against chaos and time. Where all that was held dear will perish. And in that final and utter destruction--there will be a Creation. "Erec Stebbins concludes his Daughter of Time trilogy with a novel that manages to outpace its predecessors in its capacity to induce awe. Maker is a continuously rewarding science fiction work in which many surprises reach cosmic proportions. Exploratory fiction at its most powerful and intelligent. These are works that nurture wonder and sometimes break hearts. A brilliant conclusion to a series that tests the elasticity of imagination, with consistently stunning results." -ForeWord Reviews, MAKER "Mind-bending science-fiction, pushing the boundaries of description and readers’ expectations. -San Francisco Book Reviews, MAKER

Her father is dead, her fiancé took her inheritance, and no one will employ her, despite years working for her watchmaker father. Indeed, the other London watchmakers seem frightened of her. Alone, poor, and at the end of her tether, India takes employment with the only person who'll accept her - an enigmatic and mysterious man from America. A man who possesses a strange watch that rejuvenates him when he's ill. Matthew Glass must find a particular watchmaker, but he won't tell India why any old one won't do. Nor will he tell her what he does back home, and how he can afford to stay in a house in one of London's best streets. So when she reads about an American outlaw known as the Dark Rider arriving in England, she suspects Mr. Glass is the fugitive. When danger comes to their door, she's certain of it. But if she notifies the authorities, she'll find herself unemployed and homeless again - and she will have betrayed the man who saved her life. With a cast of quirky characters, an intriguing mystery, and a dash of romance, THE WATCHMAKER'S DAUGHTER is the start of a thrilling new historical fantasy series from the author of the bestselling Ministry of Curiosities, Freak House, and Emily Chambers Spirit Medium books.

Leda ist fast fünfzig, geschieden, sie unterrichtet Englisch an der Universität in Florenz. Die erwachsenen Töchter sind jetzt beim Vater in Kanada, und Leda muss sich eingestehen, dass sie statt der erwarteten Sehnsucht vor allem Erleichterung empfindet. Den heißen Sommer verbringt sie in einem süditalienischen Küstenort: Bücher, Sonne, das Meer, was könnte friedlicher sein? Am Strand macht sich neben ihr allerdings eine übermütig lärmende neapolitanische Großfamilie breit, darunter eine noch junge Mutter und deren kleine Tochter. Leda beobachtet die beiden über Tage, zunächst fasziniert, wohlwollend. Allmählich aber schlägt ihre Stimmung um, irgendwann folgt sie einem Impuls und tut dem kleinen Mädchen und der Familie etwas Unbegreifliches an. Und wird selber heimgesucht, von lange verdrängten Erinnerungen – an gravierende Entscheidungen, die sie zu treffen hatte, ganz zum Leidwesen ihrer eigenen Töchter ... Was bedeutet es, eine Frau und Mutter zu sein? Mit frappierender Ehrlichkeit ergründet Elena Ferrante die widersprüchlichen Gefühle, die uns an unsere Kinder binden.
