I found this softcover in this Little Free Library in Maynard MA while dropping off some books of my own. (It has some underlining, but not too excessive.)

It's the author's memoir of her own life following her mother's murder, with her mother's biography woven in.

It's a wrenching story, opening with the author looking through the evidence of her mother's murder case - tiny details but harrowing even long afterwards. Then she backs up to set the scene, describe her mother as she knew her, leading up to the day when, as a 12-year-old, she woke in the night to hear her mother being assaulted and murdered - a true nightmare that changes Sarah's life. It would be another twelve years before the killer would be caught, and by then the adult Sarah has a lot to come to terms with, from her own trauma to concerns about the investigation, and whether it should have uncovered critical evidence long before...
