"Oh my God, I did it."
- Francine Hughes

The Burning Bed is the true story of Francine Hughes who killed her abusive ex-husband, Mickey, after enduring over a dozen years of emotional, financial and physical abuse. On March 9, 1977, in her home in Lansing, Michigan, Francine Hughes poured gas around her ex-husband's bed and lit it on fire. She did it after the police had been called for help but then departed without an arrest, and after she had endured a severe beating.

Francine was the mother of four children by her ex-husband, Mickey. He developed into a serial abuser, philanderer, and batterer of Francine. According to her children, Mickey beat her, "too many times to count." Finally, something snapped in Francine and fearing her own death, she resorted to killing him and then immediately fled to the police confessing her actions with a gasoline can cap still clutched in her hand.

The high profile case, followed by the book, and the film by the same name (starring Farrah Fawcett), became the turning point in laws pertaining to domestic violence in the United States. The country became fixated by the story and women's groups mobilized to change how abused women are treated by the police and by the judicial system.

The book is largely told in the words of Francine Hughes. The story is a gripping read and successfully allows the reader to feel Francine's feelings of fear, humiliation, entrapment and hopelessness. She meets Mickey as a teenager and we follow her relationship from the questionable beginning through the horrific middle and finally to the disastrous end.

This is a riveting, and at times, almost unbelievable non-fiction book. Faith McNulty does a great job of hitting the high notes that will resonate with the reader and convey a very complex, vulnerable and abusive situation.

In the end, Francine is found not guilty by reason of temporary insanity. Her case changed not only her life, but forever changed the face of domestic violence. Every woman should read this book; whether you are a young woman starting to date, a woman in an abusive relationship or a person who cares about violence in society. It is a cautionary tale that unabashedly exposes a problem, unfortunately, yet to be eliminated.

I needed this book to write a paper on it. I didn't particularly care to read it. What I found was a pretty compelling narrative of the life of a severely traumatized woman living in a society that forsook people in situations like hers. If you are studying homicide, interpersonal violence, intimate partner abuse, sociology of any kind, this book is immensely interesting.

I almost threw a match to my sleeping husband and thought I better get out of there if it was that bad. But when I left, he would stalk me and make me lose my job and school credits. He would destroy everything I was trying to do and no one to help me. I loved my children so much that he kidnap them to punish me for good. I lost my mind.

Being a survivor of two abusive marriages, I can totally relate to Francine. I think the bastard got what was coming to him. Okay, you may say that no-one deserves to die that way. No one deserves to be beaten, degraded and tormented either. Thank God I found a wonderful man who treats me with respect and love. She snapped; and I can't blame her. The police did nothing(as they did in my case, asking my ex-husband to leave for one night, nothing more). This book is very graphic but hits home, as I am sure it will to a lot of women who live this kind of hell every day. It isn't so easy to leave either, especially if you have small kids. Society is male oriented, including the courts. All I can say is, good for her. She only sped up his fate-going straight to hell.

I have read the book and seen the movie. I bought this and sent it to a friend who actually lived this kind of life and worse.
She escaped after 13 years of abuse so I thought she would enjoy reading this and knowing she was not the only one.

I am a social worker, and this is helpful to me if I ever have to work with women who were in similar situations.
thank-you,

I used this book as the base for a paper on changes in domestic violence laws between the time of the burning bed event and now. The book was informative, interesting and very specific. Quite helpful in providing accurate information. Well written.
A little slow and predictable, I did enjoy the story though!
