The Sins of the Father by Jeffrey Archer

The Sins of the Father by Jeffrey Archer
352 pages; 10 hrs., 9 min.

"Only days before Britain declares war on Germany, Harry Clifton, hoping to escape the consequences of long-buried family secrets, and forced to accept that his desire to marry Emma Barrington will never be fulfilled, has joined the Merchant Navy. But his ship is sunk in the Atlantic by a German Uboat, drowning almost the entire crew.

An American cruise liner, the SS Kansas Star, rescues a handful of sailors, among them Harry and the third officer, an American named Tom Bradshaw. When Bradshaw dies in the night, Harry seizes on the chance to escape his tangled past and assumes his identity. But on landing in America, he quickly learns the mistake he has made... Without any way of proving his true identity, Harry Clifton is now chained to a past that could be far worse than the one he had hoped to escape."  --Book Cover

This is the second in The Clifton Chronicles saga, and I love these characters.  If you like heroes who value honor, integrity, loyalty, family, and perseverance in difficult circumstances then you'll enjoy this story.  If you dive in, you'll definitely want to start with book one.
