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.

Delicately, beautifully, heartbreakingly rendered.
Delicately, beautifully, heartbreakingly rendered. A story set in 1962 when a man and woman face a dilemma and it is only after living a full life that one can assess the quality of the decisions made.
