On Chesil Beach by Ian McEwan

Updated: Jun 27, 2019

Jonathan Cape, 2007

An account, astounding in its frankness, of the expectations and apprehensions of two inexperienced newly weds as their wedding night approaches, bringing with it horrors, disappointments and regrets to last a lifetime.

"Her panic and disgust, she thought, were under control, she loved Edward, and all her thoughts were on helping him have what he so dearly wanted and to make him love her all the more."

Also a movie.
