The Borden Murders: Lizzie Borden and the Trial of the Century - Sarah Miller

4 Stars!  #TheBordenMurders Available 1/12/16  #SarahMiller

As I had really only seen the movie with Elizabeth Montgomery, I was interested in learning more about this. As I recall in the movie, the houses weren't quite as close as they seem to be in this book which is even more perplexing.

This was a very informative book that I enjoyed reading. Apparently, the law of hearsay had not been made around this time. I was both alarmed and amazed at the rumors that were flying about this poor woman and what was being allowed to be said in a court of law. The author did a lot of research on this subject. While the subject was quite grisly, I found the book interesting. It's still perplexing to me that no one was found to be guilty of these murders even after all this time.

Thanks Random House Childrens and Net Galley for providing me with this free e-galley in exchange for an honest review.
