Bitter Harvest Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Bitter Harvest

Bitter Harvest probes the case of Deborah Green, a doctor and a loving mother who seemed to epitomize the dreams of the American heartland. A small-town girl with a genius IQ, she achieved an enviable life; her own medical practice, a handsome physician-husband, three perfect children, and an opulent home in an exclusive Kansas City Suburb. But when a raging fire destroyed that home and took two lives, the trail of clues led investigators to a stunning conclusion. Piece by piece, Ann Rule digs beneath this placid Midwestern facade to unveil a disturbing portrait of strangely troubled marriages, infidelity, desparation, suicide, and escalating acts of revenge that forever changed dozens of lives. Dr. Deborah Green was a monster, and would stop at nothing to get what she wanted; even murder.
