From We Have Always Lived in the Castle, by Shirley Jackson
"'She should not have been doing the cooking,' said Mrs. Wright strongly.
'Well, of course, there is the root of our trouble. Certainly she should not have been doing the cooking if her intention was to destroy all of us with poison; we would have been blindly unselfish to encourage her to cook under such circumstances. But she was acquitted."
From Chapter 2
