Beneath a veneer of respectability and religion, Mary Winkler's soul festered as she struggled to be obedient and loving to her husband and her God. Her suppressed anguish exploded in a shotgun blast that took the life of her husband, preacher Matthew Winkler.

Mary packed up her three young daughters and fled to the beach, leaving an endless trail of questions in her wake. Would anyone ever make sense of the tragedy in Selmer, Tennessee?

    " I found this true life story very interesting. I feel that there could have been more added about the trial, but all in all it was really worth reading "

    " I felt the author put more information not needed into the book to extend the book.. I did not find the book that interesting nor did it keep my attention. I was slightly disappointed. "

    " Interesting insight and take on the Church of Christ. Actually not as negative as I was expecting. Sad story all the way. "

    " I've never read any of Fanning's other true crime books and now I'm not likely to. Her writing is saccharine and florid and apparently there's a rule that every noun must have an adjective. This is an interesting case, but it needs a real writer to do it justice. "
