The family's future happiness and security is dependent on the daughters making good marriages.

In 1935, thirteen-year-old fledgling writer Briony Tallis and her family live a life of wealth and privilege in their enormous mansion. On the warmest day of the year, the country estate takes on an unsettling hothouse atmosphere, stoking Briony's vivid imagination. Robbie Turner, the educated son of the family's housekeeper, carries a torch for Briony's headstrong older sister Cecilia. He hopes that Cecilia has comparable feelings. All it will take is one spark for this relationship to combust. When it does, Briony - who has a crush on Robbie, is compelled to interfere. She goes so far as to accuse Robbie of a crime he did not commit. Cecilia and Robbie declare their love for each other, but, ultimately, he is arrested. Briony bears false witness and the course of three lives is changed forever. As Briony grow older, she continues to seek forgiveness for her childhood misdeed. Through a terrible and courageous act of imagination, she finds the path to her uncertain atonement, and to an understanding of the power of enduring love

King Lear by William Shakespeare( Visual )

34 editions published between 1982 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A dramatization of William Shakespeare's play, King Lear, in which tragedy occurs when an old king divides his kingdom between his two daughters. King Lear is generally held to be Shakespeare's greatest tragedy and it is certainly his most embittered. Written as Shakespeare himself was approaching the end of his career as a playwright, King Lear is a story of misplaced trust, of filial ingratitude, of envy and lust for power. But, most of all, it is permeated with a sense of the meaninglessness of any human endeavour in the face of divine indifference "As flies to wanton boys are we to gods; They kill us for their sport." Unlike the other tragedies, there is little sense of the ultimate triumph of good over evil at the end of the play
