This chapter discusses Judge Sharp's move to Raleigh in 1962, which had major repercussions on every aspect of her life. Little did Judge Sharp know that she would never again live in Reidsville. She had refused numerous opportunities to sell her empty lot in the Pennrose neighborhood of Reidsville, earmarked for her retirement, and entertained herself from time to time with house plans. The most immediate impact was on Judge Sharp's relationship with John Kesler. To be sure, other factors such as the actual and psychological stresses of her elevation to the supreme court as well as complications in John's life contributed to the decline of their affair. Judge Sharp's new base also made it far more difficult for them to arrange meetings.

Keywords:   Judge Sharp, Raleigh, Reidsville, Pennrose neighborhood, John Kesler, supreme court
