The Secrets of the Clock by C.S. Kjar
Three feuding sisters, two adversaries, and a grandfather clock stirred together make a magical time on the beach.
Essie Bunny, Sharon Claus, and Hannah Horseman are ordinary sisters with extraordinary families. They have not spoken to each other since a big blow-up at a family event fifteen years ago. When their mother dies, she leaves them a cryptic message, telling them to search for her last wishes on a videotape in their childhood home. She also tells them to set the old grandfather clock to five o’clock and wait for the magic to happen.
Barely restraining their dislike of each other, the sisters return to their mother’s home on a Florida beach to find a closet stuff full of unlabeled videos. The grandfather clock sits quietly against the wall showing nine-fifteen, just like it always has. Resentment grows as they search for the right videotape and try to understand what magic will come when they set the non-working clock to five o’clock.
