It was one of the first really warm days in early June, as
Kate Morgan looked at the meticulously neat stacks of
files on her desk. She liked everything to be precise
around her, and an orderly life.
She had lived through
the unexpected shocks that can happen when her
husband died nineteen years before, and she’d had to
make order from chaos. Her children, Tamara, Anthony,
and Claire, had been thirteen, ten, and seven at the time.
She herself had been thirty-five, and had never expected
to be widowed at that age.
Her husband, Tom Morgan, had been a beloved
congressman. They’d met when she was in college and he
was in law school, and married when she graduated.
dream had been to go into politics, hers to go to law
school, but she had staunchly stood beside him instead,
as the perfect political wife, raising their three children.
He had died in a helicopter accident in a storm, while
visiting a disaster area in Upstate New York after a flood.
The news coverage about him had made him sound like a
modern day saint. Friendly, open, accessible, he had
been popular ever since his first election. Kate and the
children had been devastated, and she had struggled to
put meaning back into their lives without him.
been a wonderful father, and a good and loving husband
for most of their marriage. Now, nineteen years later, the
children still revered him, and Kate had seen to it that
their memories of their father were untarnished.
The insurance money he had left for them had made
them comfortable though not rich by any means, and
had given Kate options she hadn’t considered before.
year after Tom’s death, she had started law school at
Columbia University in New York. It had been a struggle
managing school and taking care of the children, but
she’d hired a housekeeper and also had her mother to
help her. At thirty-six, she was the oldest student in her
class, and had graduated with honors at thirty-nine.
She had worked at Berrigan Feldman and McCarthy
for the past fifteen years, since she’d passed the bar, and
was a senior partner now. Her specialty was corporate
law, and she was a talented litigator, handling some of
the firm’s most important lawsuits.
Kate had three trials scheduled in the next few
months, if they didn’t settle first. She was a tough
negotiator and a strong person, though a devoted mother
and gentle in her private life. Becoming an attorney had
added a whole new dimension to her life.
She loved her
work, and her children had adjusted to her schedule as
her career grew exponentially. They were as proud of her
as she was of them. She worked hard and was a strong
role model for them. Now that they were grown up, she
had more time and worked even harder.
