Hachette Books has generously offered to send copies of Testimony to FIVE readers of Fresh Ink Books. Thank you to Valerie at Hachette.
The giveaway is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only and Hachette cannot mail to P.O. boxes. I will accept entries until midnight, Sunday June 7, 2009 and announce the winners as soon as all have been contacted.
Description: "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."

I look forward to reading my own copy now that it has arrived and selecting the five winners. I have read five previous novels by Anita Shreve and have not been disappointed. If you are new to this author, Testimony would be a great place to start.
