Countless books about the Borden homicides have been written for adults but the market was open for one geared toward young readers when The Borden Murders Lizzie Borden the Trial of the Century arrived in 2016 The vicious murder of Andrew and Abby Borden had taken place one hundred twenty four years earlier yet urban legend culture still was fascinated by the crime Who could have predicted the suave wealthy Borden family would be engulfed by a murder that would rock their hometown and plunge their youngest daughter into enduring infamy Public appetite for details of the killings hadn't faded by the twenty first century and author Sarah Miller refreshes our memory with a dramatic retelling of that awful day and its aftermath in Fall River Massachusetts Kids who know Lizzie Borden's name may vaguely associate her with grisly murder but how many are familiar enough with the facts of her case to decide for themselves if they believe she was guilty It's easy to hear a name from history and dehumanize the person it belonged to but Lizzie Borden was as human as you or I and her name shouldn't be sullied without cause The Borden Murders takes us deep into the case file of a woman slandered down through the centuries inviting us to make up our own minds about her Whatever your opinion when you finish this book you'll possess the information to articulate it reasonably The bloody goings on of August 4 1892 were not without a convergence of backstories sensationalized by the press and prosecutors Upon seeing her massacred father downstairs in the Borden home victim of dozens of stab wounds that punctured his skull in several places thirty two year old Lizzie called out to Bridget Sullivan the maid A doctor was summoned followed by the police but Andrew Borden was beyond help As Bridget flailed around the roomy Borden house trying to make sense of the situation while avoiding the mutilated corpse Lizzie discovered her stepmother Abby slashed to death on the floor of the bedroom she shared with Andrew The rooms in which the murders happened were smeared all over with blood Lizzie's sister Emma older by nearly a decade had the shock of a lifetime when a vague message brought her home only to find her father and stepmother were dead The authorities investigated immediately searching for obvious motives a murder weapon and other evidence left by the perpetrator Their suspicion of Lizzie cropped up with their observation that she didn't appear as distraught as they'd expect having just found her parents' mangled bodies She seemed to them not in the least bothered by her stepmother's passing going out of her way to remind the detective that it was not her mother who died Lizzie's sketchy recollection of crucial details and initial hesitancy to allow a search of her bedroom also triggered alarm With no other apparent suspects and having found a dusty hatchet in the basement that could have inflicted Mr and Mrs Borden's mortal wounds police zeroed in on Lizzie If she were innocent they reasoned they'd find out during formal uestioning At the time of the inuest into the Borden slayings Lizzie and her attorney Andrew J Jennings didn't know a warrant had already been issued for Lizzie's arrest Rather than act on it right away detectives uestioned her first and it could not have gone much worse for Lizzie Denied the presence of her attorney Lizzie's account of the morning Andrew and Abby Borden died was convoluted and contradictory She claimed to be upstairs downstairs then up again with no consistency though Bridget the maid had uite a clear memory of the seuence of events Why would Lizzie have this much trouble recollecting such a momentous day She was taking calming medication which could have blurred her memory but police were convinced they had their murderer They forthwith visited the Borden house and placed Lizzie under arrest and the media storm struck Fall River wi
