The Fall River Tragedy by Edwin H. Porter (~1864 - 1904).


The story of how Lizzie Borden supposedly murdered her parents has passed into American folklore. Here we have the 'true' story, as reported by the local police reporter who attended the trial and lived only streets away from the Borden home with his young wife. After the trial, Porter 'disappeared' and it was widely speculated he had either been murdered or bribed to disappear in order to suppress the book. His reappearance some time later put paid to the first theory. After his death at age 39 from tuberculosis, a new theory emerged, that he had been away for treatment while keeping his illness secret.( Lynne Thompson)

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project.

    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Chapter 2-4 are all PL OK.

Did you see the TV mini-series a few years ago? I'm interested in how much this text will mirror it.

Sorry for the delay.
Not to worry. I was gone for a week with a family emergency. Thankfully no one hacked to death :shock: but it was scary for a while. Hopefully all is sorted out now, but going back late next week for extra support.

The "no one hacked to death" was referring to this project 8-)
The family emergency was following the arrival of my (first) grandchild... her mom was very poorly and in and out of hospital for a week. I was on granny duty... I had a ball, but obviously worried about my daughter-in-law. That's all under control, but she'd dealing with post-partum depression now, following the physical problems she had.

Sounds like a very worrisome time. At least now they know what postpartum depression is and can help her.

I'm glad you are close enough to get your granny time in. Congratulations on your new role! :9:
