So the last post about this book wasn't sounding like I would enjoy it. After about 120 pages it got much better. The story really took off for me then and I wanted to know what happens to Emmett and Lucian. Getting yourself binded sounds really horrible! #books #thebinding

This was based on the true story of Lizze Borden and the murders of her father and stepmother. I had never heard of her and the murders before. There are also films made about the events. The story is told from the 4 main characters, Lizzie, her sister Emma, the maid Bridget and Benjamin. #books #truestories
