I didn't know much about this historic and sensational story. It was a fun little true crime drama, and I left with more information but I still don't know who I think did it.

Here's my favorite quote from toward the end:

"Often in women who live out their destinies inthe small places into which they've been driven, there is a storm that broods but never bursts." - Nance O'Neil

Lizzie is a fascinating character, and this book did a good job of showing how the case has continued to live on.

I actually enjoyed this book. It was a quick read. I felt I learned things about her that I never knew. For instance, I did not know that she helped fund college educations for people. Also, she was an avid animal lover and left a large sum of her money to animal rescue services when she passed away.
