turned the case into international news and her trial into a spectacle unparalleled in American history Reporters flocked to the scene Well known columnists took up conspicuous seats in the courtroom The defendant was relentlessly scrutinized for signs of guilt or innocence Everyone rich and poor, suffragists and social conservatives, legal scholars and laypeople had an opinion about Lizzie Borden s guilt or innocence Was she a cold blooded murderess or an unjustly persecuted lady Did she or didn t she The popular fascination with the Borden murders and its central enigmatic character has endured for than one hundred years Immortalized in rhyme, told and retold in every conceivable genre, the murders have secured a place in the American pantheon of mythic horror, but one typically wrenched from its historical moment In contrast, Cara Robertson explores the stories Lizzie Borden s culture wanted and expected to hear and how those stories influenced the debate inside and outside

Lizzie Borden offers a window onto America in the Gilded Age, showcasing its most deeply held convictions and its most troubling social anxietiesMy Thoughts rating 4.5For a debut book as well as for the author , I m glad that I picked this one to read , because I m now looking foreword to see what else she writes about, while I knew a little bit about the case going into the story i didn t know a hole lot about it and that funny since i love to read true crime , and its ones of my top non fiction to read , i do have to say that the author brought the story to life , and made you think about why Lizzie did this , was she crazy , was it out of hatred to her father and step mother or was there something else going on that people just didn t see Still a good book to read With that said I

found her guilty with the information that was presented to them I honestly understand why so many people believe she s not guilty I, however, still think she is She had motive, anger, frustration, and the cool demeanor to fake innocence.But if this was tried in court today as long as we ignore all the inconsistencies and fabrications the police department made , the jury would not be 100% male, the prosecution would not be able to say Lizzie was coming to the end of her menstrual cycle and was temporarily insane, and there would definitely be psych evals.Now, about the book itself.It was so incredibly dry.There are so many minute details Cara Robertson goes into before the trial even starts She walks us through every last moment leading up to the crime, the crime itself, and then the trial begins about 100 pages in But the trial will hook you It picks up and gets to the information most people don t know about the Lizzie Borden case I was enthralled reading the transcripts and just seeing how far we ve come as a society The way the investigation was handled was completely absurd, the amount of bystanders that were supposedly trying to find the killer on their own, the differing stories told by officers in the same department, and how we treated women in a male driven society.I highly recommend this to true followers of the Lizzie Borden case Huge thank you to Cara

perplexed, to this day.Lizzie Borden lived with her sister, father and stepmother until, one day, she was charged with double homicide Her father and stepmother have been beaten to death, a murder so brutal that the trial became widely known in America of that time The press went crazy, Lizzie had her own fan clubs, she became so famous that journalists from all over the country came to trial to get to know her To this day, no one knows who did it and that is why Lizzie s story is so captivating We, as readers, can only rely on the facts that writers give us and I think that Cara Robertson did a good job in presenting the facts objectively I think I am 100% sure of who is guilty, but, then again, Lizzie s numerous supporters would prove me wrong The one thing that I disliked about this book is the style, which was dull I felt like I was reading a newspaper article The other thing were many quotations that author used, specifically because the language of that time is difficult to read today I wish some of those quotes were paraphrased or written like a dialogue I appreciate that the book was well researched and the list of sources was staggering, but still, this is a novel.On a side note, the book contains a lot of disturbing photos that are now kept in Fall River Historical Society Among portraits of Lizzie and her family, witnesses and jury, there are photos of beaten bodies in close up, so be advised I got my advanced reader s edition through Edelweiss flag 3 likesLike see review Nov 04, 2018 Cadie Sommer rated it really liked it Thanks to the kind people at Simon

from several people s perspective and not all are in agreement The trial of Lizzie Borden pretty much follows this same scenario There seems to be a lot of confusion and different stories concerning the actions of Lizzie that day, to say nothing of a murder that was so gruesome that it was difficult to believe it was the work of a woman In fact, it was so unbelievable that Judge Dewey in charging the jury almost made it impossible for them to come back with a Guilty verdict.The book is a little difficult to read due to the use of words and sentence structure used at this time, since a majority
