It is a refreshing and real story that shows that everyone experiences personal hardships. We definitely recommend this one!

This is a thrilling, clever 21st century twist on the age-old classic Lizzie Borden murder mystery.

Follow along as Borden takes back control of her life - in a way no one ever expected.
