Testimony Summary


Testimony by Anita Shreve

At a New England boarding school, a sex scandal is about to break. Even more shocking than the sexual acts themselves is the fact that they were caught on videotape. A Pandora's box of revelations, the tape triggers a chorus of voice -- those of the men, women, teenagers, and parents involved in the scandal -- that details the ways in which lives can be derailed or destroyed in one foolish moment.

A gripping emotional drama with the pace of a thriller, Anita Shreve's Testimony explores the dark impulses that sway the lives of seeming innocents, and the ways in which our best intentions can lead to our worst transgressions.

DAILY MAIL * ** 'Her experience as a storyteller shows in the writing, which is deft, the multiples voices authentic and subtly characterized. The love between Silas and his girlfriend Noelle is untouched by the cynicism around them. The other characters are perhaps t *
