It is a shame that Mary Jane Fonder would do this to Rhonda Smith. I'm reading the book now & it frightens me that an elderly woman would do this to someone she goes to church with. Even though I do not know Rhonda, but she will always be forever missed. She did nothing wrong. This was all from pure jealousy.

It's simple - she's a psychopath - this 'remembering' and now asking to be forgiven is all part of the standard manipulation process that is natural to them when cornered, these people are relentless and incurable.

I have tried to go above and beyond the basic story here and feel this woman definitely belongs in prison. She IS a murderer.

However, it is also clear this church is full of hypocrites, cliques, and those who feel superior. She was treated like an outcast, just like the rest of the world treated her. She probably expected more that being treated like an alien in church.

Too bad she could tell that the Preacher's refusal of her affection has more to do with being on the wrong team.
