Publisher's Summary

A deeply atmospheric novel by a startling new Aussie talent; an incredibly unique look inside the mind of Lizzie Borden, famously accused of murdering her father and stepmother in 1892. On August 4, 1892 Andrew and Abby Borden were murdered in their home in Fall River, Massachusetts. During the inquest into the deaths, Lizzie Borden was arrested and charged with the murder of her father and her stepmother. Through the eyes of Lizzie's sister Emma, the housemaid Bridget, the enigmatic stranger Benjamin and the beguiling Lizzie herself, we return to what happened that day in Fall River. Lizzie Borden took an axe. Or did she?

Critic Reviews

"Eerie and compelling, Sarah Schmidt breathes such life into the terrible, twisted tale of Lizzie Borden and her family, she makes it impossible to look away." (Paula Hawkins, best-selling author of Girl on the Train)
"Haunting, evocative and psychologically taut, See What I Have Done breathes fresh life into the infamous 19th-century murder case surrounding Lizzie Borden. This is a powerful, beautifully researched debut novel that brings us into contact with the recurring American dramas of violence and retribution while summoning the beguiling voices of the past." (Dominic Smith, author of the New York Times best-seller The Last Painting of Sara De Vos)

Struggled with the blank style female narrator, saved by the good make narrator. Left hanging

The male narrator put me off.

Do not listen to this unless you like the sound of saliva clicking around in someone’s mouth.

Not my favorite

In the beginning this book had promise, but the story jumped back and forward so that it became a little difficult to follow and sometimes a bit monotonous. Some of the voices bordered on disturbing.

Not my cup of tea

I didn't like it much. I kept waiting for a twist that never came!
Too much vomiting in the first couple of chapters.
