Which character in the Harry Potter books does this woman remind you of?
I'd recommend she take a nice literature class in which words like symbolism and allegory are clearly, clearly explained. It might even help her understand some of the New Testament stories better.
This is my last post until Tuesday night. By then, I should have finished the last Harry Potter book ... even though I haven't read any of the previous six. I'm on page 476 now. You know, just after that *really sad thing* happens!
