The Borden Murders: Lizzie Borden and the Trial of the Century by Sarah Miller 304 pages

I am not usually a non-fiction reader, however I was intrigued by this book. Everyone knows the rhyme about Lizzie Borden: 
   Lizzie Borden took an axe, 
   Gave her mother forty whacks. 
   When she saw what she had done, 
   She gave her father forty-one. 

I think it was because of that rhyme that made me pick up this book. It did take me a while to get into the book but once I finally did, I couldn't stop reading it. Once I was finished reading it, I have to ask "Did Lizzie kill her father and step-mother?" It may be a question that is never answered.
