Publisher's Summary

A hundred years ago, it was the trial of the century. A young woman stood accused of brutally murdering her father and stepmother in a crime so heinous that it became a benchmark in human tragedy.

A hundred years later, the Lizzie Borden case still resounds in the imagination. There are those who staunchly defend Lizzie's innocence while others vehemently declare that she did it and that the murder was justified.

In Elizabeth Engstrom's brilliant novel, the dark psychology of the Borden household is laid bare. Lizzie; her sister, Emma, and their parents, Andrew and Abby Borden, are sharply illuminated - as are the paranoia and concealed hatred that secretly ruled the family. Domestic violence and dysfunctional families are not inventions of modern times.

    "The story captured my imagination"
    Would you listen to Lizzie Borden again? Why?

    Engstrom created believable characters, and a compelling plot, creating a psychological image of Lizzie that is both fascinating and creepy. Devine's reading was perfect and worth a re-listen.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The development of Lizzie's character. I liked her, felt sorry for her, and was repulsed by her.


    What does Rozanne Devine bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The voice nuances enabled me to 'see' the people and places. Devine's reading also made me sweat along with everyone in the novel. The "two" Lizzies were enhanced by the narration.


    If you could give Lizzie Borden a new subtitle, what would it be?

    A Result of Lovelessness
