The murder of her parents by Lizzie Borden is one of the most infamous crime stories of all-time. Schmidt meticulously researched this murder and used that research to craft this fresh take on the story in her book, See What I Have Done. This book tells the story of Lizzie Borden in a different light as she tells the Borden family story with a volatile household and a childhood devoid of love. The book tells the story of that fateful day and the investigation that followed from a variety of different perspectives: the unreliable Lizzy, her sister Emma, Bridget the housemaid and a stranger named Benjamin.

Schmidt uses the multiple viewpoints to tell a cohesive and gripping story of one of the most famous murders of all time. This book has been called haunting, mesmerizing, and evocative; but it’s more than that. It’s a terrifying tale of what could lead someone to stab their parents 81 times.
