When Nancy Cooper moved from Canada to Cary, North Carolina, with her new husband Brad, their future was bright. Living in one of the most picturesque towns in the United States, the couple mingled with neighbors, attended parties, and raised two daughters.
Then, on July 14, 2008, the façade came crashing down when Nancy’s strangled body was found in a storm pond.
Nancy’s husband claimed she had gone for a jog and never came back. But as the police investigation deepened, a complex web of affairs and lies involving multiple residents of Cary’s idyllic neighborhoods was uncovered, and Brad was brought to trial for the murder of his wife. At the heart of it stood the Coopers’ soured marriage, Nancy’s threat to leave with the children, and her own cold-blooded murder. It would take a mountain of damning evidence before justice was served.
When Suzanne Parker falls to the pavement in front of Maddie during the Oak City Marathon, Maddie assumes it’s an accident. That is, until Suzanne whispers words that make Maddie’s skin go cold: my husband is trying to kill me.
Maddie’s personal experience with domestic violence in her family connects her to Suzanne in a way that she can’t ignore. Soon, Maddie’s allegiance to protecting her new friend and discovering the truth about Suzanne’s husband becomes an obsession, one that leads her down a dangerous path. When someone turns up dead, Maddie finally realizes she is all in again with crime reporting, but this time she may be in over her head.
On April 20, 2012, my journey with my mother began. She was a beautiful, vibrant, independent attorney who was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor. I became her everything — her caregiver, her advocate, the protector of her heart and her spirit. I didn’t ask for this role, but I was chosen for it.
For eighty days, my mother lived in the most unlived room in my house — the living room. In that time, more living went on in that room than had ever before taken place there. Family and friends from all walks of life pulled up chairs around her bed. We ate. We drank. We sang. We cried.
But mostly, we learned how to live again.
My mother died in that room on July 8, 2012. This is her story, my story, and every adult child’s story of what it is like to be transformed by the power of death.
