William Butler Yeats (13 June 1865 – 28 January 1939, County Dublin, Ireland). Lana Lipsett (3/1/2019 1:22:00 AM). The narrator is dreadful, certainly doesn’t know how to read poetry. Joel Coble (10/7/2008 10:22:00 PM). I love the lines about the old religious man and love the idea that you might find an ancient text that proves something, beyond doubt.

I bought this book because I live just a few miles from St. Francisville and because this was a true story. It was a good read. I vaguely remember hearing about it in the news when it happened and wanted to know the details from the victim's point of view. I would definitely recommend it to anyone that loves the south and a fight for survival and justice such as this one.
Anne's book is spellbinding and you won't be able to put it down.

Having met Anne and stayed in her B & B twice with my family, her book brought the surroundings to life again.

It's a must read!
Well-written and interesting. The bed and breakfast where it all happened is still functioning and available to look up online. The house and cottages are beautiful.

The author is more forgiving than I would have been. Her motive for marrying this fourth husband, an older man, remains a mystery.
Reads more like a novel than an autobiography- a true story of a remarkable woman and her will to survive.
Well written as a report, but missing to give a personal understanding why these two people where together in the first place. The History
of this area in Louisiana was very interesting.
We stayed at Greenwood and met Ms. Butler. Had to read this story. It's amazing and very well written.
Hard to believe that happened to someone !
