I listened to this one, read by the author, on Audio CD. It is a slim novel, the story of two virgins and a marriage destined for failure. Set in the early 1960's, before the era of "free love", it is heartbreakingly sad that the two people (who really loved each other) could not even talk about their sexual compatibility. Highly recommend.

A beautifully-written, fully realized novel with a secret. In our day, when everyone talks about their sex life, it may be difficult to comprehend the sexual ignorance and lack of communications between them of the two main characters. Yet the characters ring true and their flaws tragic.

It took some time to reveal the most important message in life, but it was worth the wait. Follow your heart...

This slim novel (200 pages) is a jewel! In 1962 England, newlyweds and virgins Edward and Florence confront love and sex on their wedding night. Flashbacks illuminate how their they grew up, met, fell in love and married. This is a beautifully written novel, containing neither satire, religiosity, nor psychobabble, by the author of 'Atonement.' Without reading it all the way through, you will not be able to predict how it will end.
