Kim Sherwood discusses Testament, her extraordinary debut novel, which won the 2016 Bath Award. Testament follows its protagonist on a journey of discovery from finding her grandfather’s testimony of surviving the Holocaust in Hungary, through Europe as it edges again towards extremism, to uncovering the truth of her grandfather’s life as a refugee in Britain. Beautifully written, moving and hopeful, it crosses the tidemark where the third generation meets the first, finding a new language to express love, legacy and our place within history.
