Publisher Description

At a 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.

The book was good, but very hard to grasp. If you are a high level thinker this book is for you, but if your just looking for a pleasureful book...Nah, I wouldn't suggest this one.

You need to get by the first chapter and the sex scene
It is integral t o the story, but so unlike anything Shreeve has written befire. I almost didn"t go any further, but later was very glad I picked it up again. A very sad book about how one stupid moment can change many lives. After awhle I couldn't put it down until i finished it.
