On Chesil Beach
by Ian McEwan
In 1962, Florence and Edward celebrate their wedding in a hotel on the Dorset coast. Yet as they dine, the expectation of their marital duties weighs over them. And unbeknownst to both, the decisions they make this night will resonate throughout their lives. With exquisite prose, Ian McEwan creates in "On Chesil Beach" a story of lives transformed by a gesture not made or a word not spoken.
