While a desire for attention may have pushed her into the legal arena, it has been respect, not attention, that Rufe Dorsey Edwards McCombs has cultivated throughout her fifty-five year legal career. Overcoming impediments of her own - stuttering, blindness, tuberculosis, and cancer - and roadblocks from those who refuse to accept a woman as an attorney, McCombs relied upon two things for success: an abiding faith and a devotion to work. A sense of humor prevailed where faith and hard work failed. Currently serving as a Senior Superior Court Judge for the State of Georgia, McCombs looks back at her life and remarks, "If you live long enough you begin to regret it".

"On a cold winter day in the midst of the Depression, the hardworking wife of a farmer and Primitive Baptist preacher in South Georgia gave birth to her eleventh child, a daughter named Faye. Money was scarce, times were hard, and from the moment she could walk, Faye worked, doing whatever it took to keep the ninety-acre farm going. No one could have predicted that this little girl would grow up to be the first woman attorney in the county, the first woman appointed to the Georgia Superior Court bench, and the first woman chief superior court judge in Georgia." "This biography focuses on the life and times of a woman who overcame the initial obstacles of gender and poverty and the later challenges of alcoholism to become the first woman attorney in Bulloch County, the first woman appointed to the Georgia Superior Court bench, the first woman chief superior court judge in Georgia, and the first mother to swear in her own daughter as an attorney in Georgia."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
