On the hottest day of the summer of 1935, 13-year-old Briony Tallis sees her older sister Cecilia strip off her clothes and plunge into the fountain in the garden of their country house. Watching Cecilia is their housekeeper's son Robbie Turner, a childhood friend who, along with Briony's sister, has recently graduated from Cambridge.

By the end of the day the lives of all three will have been changed forever. Robbie and Cecilia will have crossed a boundary they had not dared to approach and will have become victims of the younger girl's scheming imagination. And Briony will have committed a dreadful crime, the guilt for which will color her entire life.

Atonement is at its center a profound, and profoundly moving, exploration of shame and forgiveness, and the difficulty in absolution.

    " As I started Atonement, I wasn't sure what to expect. About a quarter of the way through, I almost put it down. I'm so glad I didn't. This engaging story is very thought provoking and deals with some pretty difficult issues. I found the final pages completely engrossing. This is going to be one of those books I don't stop thinking about for a long time. Not for everyone, but if you are looking for something that will make you think, this is a good one. "

    " This book has stayed with me for a long time. An almost terrifying reminder of how powerful a lie can become, and what damage petty jealousy can create. "

    " I could not put the book down the last 100 pages, which is rare for me. Good read. "

    " A true bestseller. This was just...ay, I cried so much, but its message was so clear to me. A keeper. "
