Anna Hayes, Without Precedent:The Life of Susie Marshall Sharp | NC Bookwatch

Dec. 1, 2014

Anna Hayes presents Sharp's career as an attorney, distinguished judge, and politician within the context of the social mores, the legal profession, and the political battles of her day, illuminated by a careful and revealing examination of Sharp's family background, private life, and personality.
