Now available as a value-priced edition!

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 voices--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.

Writing with a pace and intensity surpassing even her own greatest work, Anita Shreve delivers in TESTIMONY a gripping emotional drama with the impact of a thriller. No one more compellingly explores the dark impulses that sway the lives of seeming innocents, the needs and fears that drive ordinary men and women into intolerable dilemmas, and the ways in which our best intentions can lead to our worst transgressions.

About the Author:

Anita Shreve is the critically acclaimed author of fourteen novels, including Body Surfing, The Pilot's Wife, which was a selection of Oprah's Book Club, and The Weight of Water, which was a finalist for England 's Orange Prize. She lives in Massachusetts .

From AudioFile:

This full-cast production tells the spellbinding story of a sex scandal caught on videotape at a prestigious New England boarding school. The drug and alcohol-compromised participants, particularly the 14-year-old victim, portray the tension of sexual curiosity and the reality of next-day regret, making the event especially believable. Harsh but compelling scenarios of the rape are presented through the voices of multiple participants. The account is also told from several viewpoints--the parents, privileged underage students, school administrators, and a reporter. Although the novel's beginning is graphic, the surprising truths, healing, and life transformations make the story worth continuing to the end. The choice of multiple narrators adds to the intensity of the production. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
