Review: THE SECRETS OF LIZZIE BORDEN by Brandy Purdy
An intriguing account of the life and times of one Lizzie Borden, of Fall River, Massachusetts, THE SECRETS OF LIZZIE BORDEN unfolds from the bird's eye view, a first-person narrative related by Lizzie herself. I was struck by the ongoing misery of the household of Andrew Borden. A wealthy man, he might have provided proficiently for his first wife and daughters, and later for his second wife. Instead the family lived as if poverty-stricken, with the only acknowledgement of wealth being Andrew' s constant remonstrances against devious fortune hunters. Lizzie seems a failed person, never able to achieve joy or happiness or ever to find love.
