As the Borden ax-murder centennial approaches (), Lizzie Fever is apparently in the air—with a non-fiction reappraisal by Frank Spiering coming in June as well as this half-absorbing novel by veteran Hunter. The book begins strongly, as year-old Lizzie arrives in London for a trip with three lady-friends. (The fact of the trip is historical; the specifics are all fictional.).   I only listened to ninety minutes of an eleven-hour book so I’m not giving a star rating but I’m certain this book is not for me. I liked the story idea – nine-year-old-girl dramatically passes out and is diagnosed as having Type 1 diabetes, her mother has to cope with the consequences alone except for the perhaps ghostly intervention from a dead but still inspirational great-grandfather.   Wish Upon a Shell - Ebook written by Kay Correll.
