Lizzie Borden (coming in 2024)

Lizzie Borden by Deborah O'Toole is an essay about the American women who became notorious for being the main suspect in the brutal murders of her father and stepmother in 1892. While acquitted of the charges in a court of law, Lizzie spent the remainder of her life under a shadow of doubt.


The following is a little ditty made popular during Lizzie's lifetime:

Lizzie Borden took an ax

and gave her mother forty whacks.

When she saw what she had done,

she gave her father forty-one.


Lizzie Borden by Deborah O'Toole is scheduled for release in 2024, when it will be made available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
