Plot Foiled

“But in the weeks after the honeymoon, O’Connell started to wonder why his wife’s health wasn’t deteriorating.”

A woman pretended to have cancer because she wanted a free wedding and honeymoon, but when it became clear she wasn’t sick, her husband divorced her and the townspeople wanted to “rock her in the town square, stone her to death.” (Aah!) But wait! Then she and her husband got back together, and had a (second) baby! And he’s okay with it all, in the end, even though she still won’t admit she lied and instead claims she was cured by healthy food and exercise! It’s a crazy story! It’s like The Crucible meets … two different reality shows? I don’t know!
