Sarah Schmidt See What I Have Done

When her father and stepmother are found brutally murdered on a summer morning in 1892, 32-year-old Lizzie Borden immediately becomes a suspect. But at the end of her trial, she is found innocent. No one is ever convicted of the crime.

‘Reading Sarah Schmidt’s debut novel See What I Have Done is like pressing down on a blossoming bruise. It is compelling, uncomfortable and somehow irresistible.’ – Justine Hyde in NRB. You can read her full review here.
