At a New England boarding school, a sex scandal is about to break. But there’s something even more shocking than the sexual acts themselves—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 detail the ways in which lives can be derailed or destroyed in one foolish moment.

Writing with a pace and intensity that surpasses even her own greatest work, Anita Shreve delivers a gripping emotional drama with the impact of a thriller. Testimony 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.
