Watching her too is Robbie Turner who, like Cecilia, has recently come down from Cambridge. 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. ‘The best thing he has ever written’ Observer**ONE OF THE GUARDIAN’S 100 BEST BOOKS OF THE 21st CENTURY**
