Testimony by Anita Shreve
I've read most of her books, and I enjoy how Anita captures emotions and hooks you into the characters. Unfortunately this book didn't do that for me like she had in her other books.
Anita Shreve bases her stories around the New England setting with a fictional story line. Testimony takes place in Vermont at a boarding school. The incident is incredibly sad and I can only imagine if the story were true, what would a mother do?
If you've never read a book by Anita Shreve, I wouldn't recommend starting with this one as I don't think the style of this book best portraits her writing. However, this story is so heartbreaking, I would only recommend it those those who can handle very unhappy endings.
