Product Description:

This novel, set in Wales, tells a tale of love and death centred around an Oxford don who leaves for a Welsh farm and for the wife of a neighbouring farmer.

From the Back Cover:

'Testimonies', Patrick O'Brian's first novel, was written almost twenty years before the first of his famous Aubrey/Maturin series and is now available for the first time in paperback.

“Patrick O'Brian's 'Testimonies' makes one think of a great ballad or Biblical story…In O'Brian, as in Yeats, the most studied literary cultivation and knowledge bring into being works which read as if they were prior to literature and conscious literary technique.”
DELMORE SCHWARTZ

“The harmony between setting, character, narrative and method achieves an extraordinary power and intensity of emotion without ever betraying the slightest sign of effort. It is a story that does not so much speak as sing, with haunting purity of the ancient rhapsode or the bard, yet in a voice as modern and direct as today's newspaper.”
GODFREY HODGSON, 'Independent'

“O'Brian has a power of bringing near to the reader…savagery and tenderness, beauty and mystery and boldness and dignity… He's perceptive and skilled, but best of all he writes with passion.”
EUDORA WELTY

“The perfection of its prose… the characters' attitudes and motives, the delicate complexities of feeling, and the lyrical evocation of place make this book remarkable… 'Testimonies' is a perfect tragedy.”
JESSICA MANN, 'Sunday Telegraph'

“Wonderfully portrayed… the uncompromising detail of the scenery, the small, revealing exchanges of social life and the persuasive development of character are those of a master-novelist working.”
PHILIPPA GREGORY, 'Sunday Times'
