In chapter ten, right when they found May's dead body, Lily makes a connection with May and the Lady of Chains.
"When they laid her down on the bank, water gushed from her mouth and nostrils. I though, this is the way our lady came washing up on the river near Charleston. I though, look at her finger, her hands. They are so precous."
My question is what's significant about the connection Lily makes between May and Our Lady?
I would really appriciate the help, I have answered 129 other questions (this is the last one) on this book and my mind is litteraly done with all of the questions. So if you could please help me I would be so thankful.
