Winner of the Book of the Year and Author of the Year at the Galaxy British Book Awards 2008.

A heartbreaking novel that is beautifully written. So much can be undone by what is left unsaid and McEwan is a master at conveying this.

On Chesil Beach Synopsis

In a hotel on the Dorset coast, overlooking Chesil Beach, Edward and Florence, who got married that morning, are sitting down to dinner in their room. Neither is entirely able to suppress their anxieties about the wedding night to come. This is a story about how the entire course of a life can be changed by a gesture not made or a word not spoken.
