Devastated by divorce and the death of her child, Torie Van Fleet is rebuilding her life around her goal of succeeding in the justice system, and ultimately working her way to the U.S. Supreme Court. Vowing to do whatever it takes, she risks her relationship with her new husband by refusing to bear him a child. Further, she jeopardizes her friendship with her best friend by competing with her for the first major hurdle toward her goal, appointment to the Texas Supreme Court after the sudden death of one of the justices.
