An embattled young doctor, an angry and divided Pennsylvania town, a turn-of-the-century national scandal--out of these turbulent elements Taylor Caldwell crafted a major novel, a massively detailed chronicle of love, death, redemption, and the rise of modern medicine. First published in 1968, it spent ten months on the New York Times bestseller list and was made into a highly praised and fondly remembered 1977 miniseries.

            Testimony of Two Men tells the story of Jonathan Ferrier, a brilliant physician hounded by his tragic past and threatened present. The capricious healer of Hambledon, Dr. Ferrier remains an enigma to all. Even a sympathetic young outsider--Dr. Robert Morgan, fresh from Johns Hopkins--is hard pressed to separate the facts from the lies. But everyone knows that Ferrier’s wife--a girlish and near-legendary beauty named Mavis--died in grisly circumstances.

            In unraveling Ferrier’s terrible secret, Caldwell brings into play an astonishing range of characters: the lusty, laughing, almost demoniac Mavis, whose memory haunts her husband; Dr. Ferrier’s gentle and indomitable mother, the grande dame of Hambledon; likeable but corrupt brother Harald and silent and brooding “niece” Jenny; and the powerful politicians who plot to destroy the despised doctor. To these men and women, Taylor Caldwell brings compassionate yet cynical observations that culminate in her most accomplished and memorable work of fiction.

I loved the book, and got it on my Kindle because my paperback is about 40 years old and the pages are yellowing and falling out from use. But am rating the Kindle edition which was SO full of typos that it could hardly be read. Who in the world edited this book? There were no apostrophes in the words "we'll" or "he'll" and they were printed as "well" and "hell". The word "little" was "Utile" and the word "lip" was "Up" There were more, but those are the ones that stick out. On one page, a conversation from another chapter was inserted and then it went back to what I started reading before the other conversation came into play.

HORRIBLE Kindle edition. I should get a refund and pay the going rate for a new paperback edition.

I like historical fiction. The author has researched well political and social customs and how they impacted medical practices. The author honored medical doctors that introduced and fought for asepsis and hygiene in the operating rooms. We owe our lives to them and many are forgotten. This book is a tribute to them. The story of a doctor named Jonathan Ferrier is very inspiring. His passion and integrity and persistence in the face of oppositions and persecution are the qualities that made him a héroe . I like Taylor Caldwell's books because she makes a profund moral análisis of the characters. They have flaws and weaknesses coexisting with valor, integrity and honesty. This leads to movement and character development that added to the richness of the story. I have to admit that inspires me to self reflect and spiritual growth . She was a superb writer and I have read several of her books. This is one of my favorites I recommend it if you are interested in a historical fiction deeply framed in social and cultural values . I have a new appreciation for modern medical practices and immunology. They fought for the lives of all of us. I am grateful to the author for giving the readers an awareness of their battles and victories.

I gave it 4 stars because of Kindle's (Amazon) editing. The spelling errors ("he" for "lie"; "many" for "marry"; "hps" (not even a word!) for "lips) and the punctuation errors ("hell" for "he'll"; "well" for "we'll" etc.). Taylor Caldwell was an excellent writer and I think it was rather insulting for Kindle not to proofread and correct before loading her book onto kindle. It was kind of distracting to have to translate several sentences because kindle did not put a period where it belong.
Now that my rant is over about the errors made by kindle, I will review the book. I had read this book many years ago (not going to say how long ago) and remember I loved the book. It was the first book I read by Taylor Caldwell and has made me a lifelong fan of hers. It was still excellent the second time around. Has made me want to dig out my Taylor Caldwell's books and read them again. Get this book - it is worth it even though you will have to figure out some of the words that kindle did not fix.

Taylor Caldwell was the queen of the Victorian/Edwardian era pot-boiler. That is not meant as a criticism; more like a classification of the story. Richly written characters presented with their flaws as well as their strengths, believable plot lines and filled with commentary on the human condition.
One word of warning; some of the evaluations that some of the characters express about women; their thoughts, their feelings and desired is very antiquated. Partially due to the time period of the novel, partially due to the time period the novel was originally published. There are references to rape; and an expressed belief from several characters, both men and women, that women "like" to be forced into sexual relations. But I did not find this offensive, merely silly and a product of the times mentioned.

Such a great book! It not only has a deep story line about the doctors who are the main characters, but it is also informative about medicine at the turn of the century. I had trouble putting it down! Another great Caldwell book.

I was delighted to revisit this old favorite, now that I can't read the fine print in my paperback copy anymore! Other reviewers left complaints about transcription and formatting errors, but I found nothing distracting in my Kindle edition. I hope Amazon will put other Taylor Caldwell titles on sale so I can affordably re-read them, too.
The lack of editing of the Kindle edition is painful. It seems that every page has multiple typos. It is obvious it was scanned but never proofed.
It's an excellent story marred by the indifference of the publisher.
