Ladies Book Discussion

All are welcome to join us as we discuss Ian McEwan’s novel, On Chesil Beach.
Plot Summary: On their wedding day, a young couple — Florence, daughter of an Oxford academic and a successful businessman, and Edward, an earnest history student with little experience of women — looks forward to the future while worrying about their upcoming wedding night.
About the Author: Ian McEwan’s books are haunting, eloquent, precise investigations of how discrete events loom large in the human psyche. His novels are suspenseful and feature subjects of contemporary relevance, often with political undertones, that readers reflect on long after finishing. McEwan’s topics are varied and creative, but his stories often involve a sudden event that turns the direction of an ordinary life, forcing the intelligent and reflective character to cope.
