In conclusion, this book argues that, after half a century of hard work and sacrifice, Judge Sharp should have been looking forward to years of pleasure and enjoyment ahead of her. She looked forward to having time to travel, to indulge her thwarted interest in cooking, to relax for the first time in her life without the pressure of an all-consuming job—but her later years were to be filled with misfortune and tragedy on an epic scale. In Raleigh, she and Judge Bobbitt continued to go to the Justice Building every day, where the court provided them with makeshift office space. Judge Sharp's new “chambers” was a seven-by-seventeen-foot cubbyhole that she had formerly used as an overflow file room.
