I’ve got 5 copies (paperback) of Testimony by Anita Shreve up for giveaway to my readers courtesy of Valerie at Hachette Book Group. I read this novel last year and you can peek at my review here if you’re so inclined. This novel would be great for book clubs and it even includes a reading guide which you can view here. There are many issues worth discussing in it. Otherwise, here is a bit about the book from the publisher…
- 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.
