Ashley (The United States)’s review of Bitter Harvest: A Woman s Fury, a Mother s Sacrifice

Reading this for book club. I don't care for how the information is coming across. It's reading as if it was an episodes of Forensics File or 48 hours or something. Granted, it's a true story but I wish it was written more with a traditional plot. Through the eyes of someone.

The book seems dated, I didn't care for the references just because Deborah had cut her hair short, wore unisex styled clothes and had a low sex drive that these would be cause for concern of either her marriage falling apart or the potential characteristics of a psychopath.

I do wonder if this happened today if Deborah would have been diagnosed with Asbergers as I feel some of the details earlier in the book about Deborah might have put her in that spectrum.

Also, there were some things I agreed with on Deborah' terms. I too dislike stupid people. I can relate to, from working in the medical field, that when people come in with blazing infections and you just look at them like, why did you take care of this sooner?


While I was only a small child when this happened and I do not remember hearing about it on the news, it's a tragedy. A tragedy that could have been told better, IMO.

Bitter Harvest by Ann Rule

Bitter Harvest

On the night of October 23rd-24th, 1995, in Prairie Village, Kansas, a fierce, wind-driven fire devastated the luxurious mansion of Dr. Debora Green and her husband, Dr. Michael Farrar. Trapped and burned to death in the flames were twelve-year-old Tim Farrar and his six-year-old sister, Kelly. Lissa, ten, was barely able to leap to safety from the garage roof while her mother, arms outstretched, urged her to jump. When Michael Farrar arrived on the scene, he had lost more than his children and his home. His entire life was in ruins. The fire was the climactic event of Michael and Debora's lives. Until that summer, they seemed to have it all - a happy marriage, successful medical practices, three bright and beautiful children. Then they went on a trip to Peru with their son. There, they met attractive, blond Celeste Walker, whose husband, John, was also a successful doctor. But after that trip, nothing was the same again for either couple, and all the dark, submerged forebodings in Debora and Michael's marriage bubbled to the surface in a series of almost unbelievable horrors. First there was Tim's rebellious behavior, which erupted into physical violence against his father. Then there was Michael's illness - mysterious episodes so violent that he had to be hospitalized and came close to death. Then John Walker was found dead in his garage - was it suicide or murder? Perhaps most inexplicable of all was Debora herself, whose personality and even appearance underwent dramatic changes that summer. Bitter Harvest is the chronicle of this tragedy in the heartland of America, the true story of the disintegration of a marriage and its horrifying consequences. Ann Rule has no equal in the delineation of the aberrant criminal mind. As in her earlier books, she takes her readers deep into the psyche of a killer whose behavior, so twisted and so evil, defies belief. Her book is also the story of the tireless and skillful arson investigators, forensic scientists, and pros.

Audio Book Summary

On the night of October 23/24, 1995 in Prairie Village, Kansas, a fierce, wind-driven fire devastated the luxurious mansion of Dr. Debora Green and her husband, Dr. Michael Farrar. Trapped and burned to death in the flames were twelve-year-old Tim and his six-year-old sister Kelly. Lissa, ten, was barely able to leap to safety from the garage roof into the arms of her mother, who was standing outside the house. When Michael Farrar returned to the scene, he had lost more than his children and his home. His entire life was in ruins.

The fire was the climactic event of Michael and Debora's lives. Until that summer, they seemed to have it all -- a happy marriage, successful medical practices, three bright and beautiful children. Then they went on a trip to Peru with their son. There, they met attractive, blonde Celeste Walker, whose husband, John was also a successful doctor. But after that trip, nothing was the same again for either couple, and all the dark hidden places in Debora and Michael's marriage bubbled to the surface in a series of almost unbelievable horrors.

"Bitter Harvest" is the chronicle of this tragedy in the heartland of America, the true story of the disintegration of a marriage and its horrifying consequences. Rule takes us deep in the psyche of a killer whose behavior was so twisted and so evil that it defies belief. Gripping, powerful, and ultimately terrifying, "Bitter Harvest" is a vivid recreation of an unthinkable crime -- and a depiction of the unimagined depths of a darkness within the human spirit.

Ann Rule RULES. If you love true crime this one keeps you at the edge of your seat.

Elaine Maher

VERY DEPRESSING STORY. I DON'T KNOW WHY I EVEN FINISHED LISTENING. IT'S LIKE A BAD MOVIE, YOU HATE IT, BUT FOR SOME REASON JUST NEED TO WATCH IT UNTIL THE END. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS TO ANY ONE UNLESS THEY WANT TO FEEL VERY DEPRESSED.

Anonymous

Interesting Story. Hard to believe that this is true.

Shane Nixon

For me, Rule has set an incredibly high standard, and quite frankly, this one doesn't measure up. I think there just wasn't enough drama or mystery in the crime itself. Maybe not, but to me it wasn't as good as her others for some reason. I wasn't crazy about the narrator either, though it would have been tolerable if I'd found more interest in the book. It won't keep me from reading Rule again, but this one isn't GREAT!

Every Breath You Take: A True Story Of Obsession, Revenge, And Murder

If anything ever happens to me, promise me that you will see that there is an investigation. And find Ann Rule and ask her to write my story," Sheila Blackthorne Bellush told her sister after she divorced multimillionaire Allen Blackthorne. Now, in perhaps the first book ever written at a victim's request, America's Number One bestselling true-crime writer, Ann Rule, untangles a horrific web of lies that culminated in Sheila's savage murder more than ten years after she left Blackthorne.

When beautiful, blond Sheila married the charming, handsome Blackthorne, she was convinced she had found her perfect soul mate, and helped him reach his goal of living the privileged life of the country club set. But behind Allen's smooth facade, she discovered a violent, controlling sociopath -- a liar, a scam artist, a sexual deviant. When she finally fled with their two young daughters, she was skeletally thin, bruised, and beaten.

Although Sheila recovered, remarried, and was starting a new life and family, she still felt she was doomed. Joyously pregnant, she and her new husband expecting quadruplets, Sheila still feared Blackthorne, who had sworn to her he would monitor her every move and "every breath you take." And, in fact, Blackthorne inevitably tracked her down, as did her killer, who left her in a pool of blood marked by the tiny footprints of her two-year-old toddlers. The questions remained: Could the authorities ever link Sheila's murder to Blackthorne himself? Was his true obsession high-stakes golf and his extravagant pink mansion -- or was it to destroy Sheila?

Following a trail of deception from Oregon and Hawaii to Texas and Florida, Ann Rule gained complete accessto Sheila's family, friends, and neighbors, as well as to the detectives and prosecutors on the case. With "Every Breath You Take," Ann Rule has written a heart-pounding account of obsession, revenge, and murder that will enthrall readers from beginning to end.
