A Private Disgrace: Lizzie Borden by Daylight
A Private Disgrace Lizzie Borden by Daylight Author:Victoria Lincoln Lizzie Borden took an ax, — Gave her mother forty whacks. — When she saw what she had done, — She gave her father forty-one. — BUT, did you know that... — A jury deliberated only a little over an hour before acquitting Lizzie Borden, and that no one else has ever been tried for the crime? — Yet, the legend still lives through an opera, a ballet, and n... more »umerous books and plays. In fact, so much has been written about the case that it may seem presumptuous to call any one account definitive. Nevertheless, many experts agree that A Private Disgrace is the single best account of the ghastly events which took place in Fall River, Mass. on August 14, 1892.
Author Victoria Lincoln is uniquely qualified to write about the Borden case. She grew up in Fall River. her parents were the social equals of the Bordens. And, as a child, she knew Lizzie Borden.
A Private Disgrace is not only a powerful evocation of the Borden murders - along with their solution - but a fascinating study of upper class mores in a New England mill town.« less
