It seems unfair that she faced so many horrible things that most of us wouldn't wish on our worst enemies including losing her teenage son in a car accident, a cheating husband, and terminal cancer. But, she fought it all and persevered with a sense of humility, grace and understanding.

First, Brooklyn is considered a suspect, but later is cleared. Along the way, Brooklyn conducts her own investigation to clear her name and soon more bodies turn up dead.
