Gerald Schoenewolf Unveils His Epic Tale “Lizzie Borden: A Biographical Novel”


Living Center Press is proud to announce the release of “Lizzie: A Biographical Novel,” a gripping exploration of the life of the infamous Lizzie Borden, who was accused of killing her father and stepmother with an axe in 1892. Written by psychoanalyst and novelist Gerald Schoenewolf, this book delves deep into the mind of a woman driven to the brink of insanity by tragedy.

This novel is a powerful retelling Lizzie’s story, based on research and evidence that has never before been used to tell the true version of her life. It is a classic nineteenth century-style novel, filled with the horrors and passions of a life that was taken too soon.

Lizzie Borden was five years old when her mother died, leaving her alone with her father. He favored her, and Lizzie clung to her Daddy, even sleeping in his bed. One night, things went too far, as Lizzie unwittingly became a little comforting angel to her lonely father. When he married a local spinster, she took his heart away from Lizzie, and then all his money. Lizzie and her older sister began fighting with their father and stepmother, and the fights became so violent that they were sent away from the house in Massachusetts.

When Lizzie returned alone, her father killed all her pet pigeons by axing their heads off. This threw Lizzie over the edge, and a few days later, she axed her father and stepmother to death. In the trial, she was quickly acquitted. The book follows Lizzie as she has a romance with a famous actress from the New York and Boston stage, but that affair turns out badly. Her sister breaks off with her as Lizzie becomes more and more selfish. She dies at the age of 66, just days after her sister had fallen downstairs and died.

This book is a unique exploration of the dark side of human nature. Schoenewolf’s goal is to provide readers with an entertaining and enlightening experience that will leave them with a deeper understanding of the tragedy of Lizzie Borden’s life.
