Groundbreaking Book

Parallel Lives: A Social History of Lizzie A. Borden and Her Fall River, co-authored by Fall River Historical Society curators Michael Martins and Dennis A. Binette, was chosen as one of Kirkus Reviews’ Best Books of 2012 and was also awarded a Kirkus star for exceptional merit, a coveted designation in the publishing industry.

Considered “one of the most trusted sources for separating books of remarkable merit from the masses released each year,” Kirkus reviews more than 5,000 books annually and has described Parallel Lives as “a must-have for history buffs” and a “riveting history of … Fall River, Mass., and its most infamous resident, Lizzie Borden.”

The groundbreaking book presents an extensive array of new material that previously lay sequestered in private collections on four continents, including 35 pieces of Lizzie Borden‘s correspondence, most notably the only letters known to have been written from her jail cell.
