Testimony
By

Rating
A sex scandal at a New England boarding school unleashes a storm of shame and recrimination throughout the small community. A chorus of voices--those of the men, women, and teenagers involved--details the events of that night and their aftermath. Writing with a pace and intensity surpassing even her own greatest work, Anita Shreve brings us a gripping emotional drama with the impact of a thriller. No one more compellingly explores the impulses that drive ordinary people into intolerable dilemmas, or the ways in which lives can be derailed or destroyed in one foolish moment.

Reviews

"Haunting....Paced like a thriller, TESTIMONY sustains its intensity to the end."--Carmela Ciuraru, Hallmark "Gripping. . . . TESTIMONY will break your heart even as you race on to the next page."--Jennifer Roolf Laster, Houston Chronicle " Contrasting the sweetness of young love with the primal recklessness of lust, Shreve paints a chilling portrait of how bad decisions in brief moments can ruin lives." --Joanna Powell, People "Gripping....Shreve sets us down in a swirling drama that ruins lives, ends one, all stemming from a night of drunken abandon at a prep school."--Sherryl Connelly, New York Daily News "A tale that is mesmerizing, hypnotic, and compulsive. No one walks away unscathed, and that includes the reader."--Bette-Lee Fox, Library Journal
