On the hottest day of the summer of 1935, thirteen-year-old Briony Tallis sees her sister Cecilia strip off her clothes and plunge into the fountain in the garden of their country house.

By the end of that day, the lives of all three will have been changed for ever, as Briony commits a crime for which she will spend the rest of her life trying to atone.

Atonement

First- this man writes some magnificent sentences. Works of art.
-
My experience was impatience originally at the amount of introspection, which came across as artistically created padding or waffle.
But half way through I was sucked right in.
How would it all pan out.
A good book on a fascinating theme with a satisfying ending.
