Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Peters both realize now that what they have learned about Mrs. Wright (by being in her home) her life and marriage have been far worse than they could have

Ladydi’s relationship with her mother is broken and difficult. Her mother had a saying that “if you pray for something that you want it is not going to happen”, so she told Ladydi to get on her knees and pray for spoons.
