:Once London's top thief, Barclay Pearce has turned his back on his life of crime and now uses his skills for a nation at war. But not until he rescues a clockmaker's daughter from a mugging does he begin to wonder what his future might hold.

Evelina Manning has constantly fought for independence, but she certainly never meant for it to inspire her fiancé to end the engagement and enlist in the army. When the intriguing man who saved her returns to the Manning residence to study clockwork repair with her father, she can't help being interested. But she soon learns that nothing with Barclay Pearce is as simple as it seems.

As 1915 England plunges ever deeper into war, the work of an ingenious clockmaker may give England an unbeatable military edge--and Germany realizes it as well. Evelina's father soon finds his whole family in danger--and it may just take a reformed thief to steal the time they need to escape.

Solid historical romance
4 stars By Iola, Nov 03 2018
Barclay Pearce has undergone a transformation since A Name Unknown and A Song Unheard, the first two books in this series. Then, he was a thief and the leader of a large adopted family of thieves. He's now been persuaded of the truth of the gospel and the associated need to change his ways. His newfound honesty is challenged when V, his mysterious boss, asks him to befriend Mr Manning, a clockmaker who has made what could be a revolutionary discovery.

As Barclay befriends Mr Manning, he also meets and befriends Miss Evelina Manning. This is an interesting relationship to watch develop, as Lina has recently been jilted because her fiance didn't think she loved him. Now she's wondering if she can love anyone ...

And, as with the other books in this series, there is a bet within the members of Barclay's makeshift family-and again, it relates to the title.

White has the ability to take little-known factoids from history and incorporate them into her story without it feeling forced (for example, the origin of Rolex watches, and the presence of internment camps in England in World War I).

World War I is an excellent backdrop to this romance story about two people damaged by their parents and trying to rise above their histories to become better people.

Recommended for historical romance fans.

Wow!
5 stars By Jacqui, Oct 01 2018
Wow!
This third book in the Shadows Over London series was so difficult to put down. Fiction is interwoven with historical fact beautifully. This story continues with Barclay, the big brother of a family of London's best thieves. The depth of love and passion for family and especially orphans that Jesus has is shown throughout this book as you journey with Barclay. Evelina, the other main character and her family offer the contrast of the worlds and attitudes. Although I don't generally like books set during the war the one is so well written that I loved it.
