Review: People have for over a century heard the nursery rhyme about Lizzie Borden killing her parents. Sarah Miller's book takes a new look at what happened that fateful day and in the months following. Did Lizzie kill her parents or did the officers investigating the scene make many mistakes? This well-documented nonfiction grants insight into human nature, gossip and preconceived notions, the unique Borden family dynamics, as well as the culture, politics, and social norms of the late nineteenth century.
