    1. Received free through GoodReads First Reads - thank you.Detailed biography of the Perigal and Duterrau families who were watch and clockmakers to George III. Well researched, the author has given an excellent chronology of the family from 1688 when Gideon Perigal and family were allowed to travel to London to escape the Huguenot persecutions in France. Having done family history research myself I can appreciate the work gone into this book.
