Monday's Quest

Monday Knight has set a goal: to find a woman whose first name is the day of the week on which they were born. Although she hasn't quite completed this task, we have tracked them down. Below is a brief peek at each of the Women of the Week, including Monday Knight herself. Yes, they are there, just lurking in the shadows.  

Monday’s child is fair of face.” 

Monday Knight is a very successful model who is just about to begin her career in movies. Her one asset is her beauty. She has moved to Los Angeles and her agent just informed her that she got a part in a new movie starring Tom Cruise. She is driving to the studio in her flashy red Ferrari convertible when she is hit by a drunk driver. At the hospital, Dr. Stephen White, the country’s leading plastic surgeon, is summoned. She can’t believe she will ever amount to anything again, because she has lost the only thing that ever mattered to her, despite his insistence that she is “beautiful on the inside--where it really counts.” After her final plastic surgery she looks in the mirror for the first time and discovers she is more gorgeous than ever. She is finally able to commit to Dr. White when he proposes to her--for the umpteenth time. Her recovery has hit all the national newspapers and magazines, and her agent comes to tell her on the day she is released that the movie she was to appear in has cancelled her contract. Before, she would have been crushed at such news, but now she is able to take it. He then tells her that they have issued a new contract; she is to play the lead against Tom Cruise in the same movie.

Tuesday’s child is full of grace.” 

Tuesday Nolan is a typical “Miss Manners.” She lives in Charleston, SC in a huge old colonial mansion. She has been to finishing school and is a graduate of an all girls’ college. She has made it her goal to restore the south to what it used to be, and to pursue this plan she has established the “Tuesday School of Grace.” On her way to a large flashy function she is approached by a tattered homeless man who asks her for money to buy a meal. She is appalled at such a person, but he sticks to her like glue, appearing almost everywhere she goes. Finally, in desperation, she determines to reform this uncouth creature into someone worth living. What she doesn’t know is that he is a topnotch reporter, William Hart III, who is working undercover to get a story. He has just as much upbringing as she does, but if he reveals that to her he will blow his cover. He tries to “woo” her, but she can’t even think of such a thing, despite the cries of her heart to yield to him. When she finally does, he reveals the truth about himself.

Wednesday’s child is full of woe.” 

Wednesday Hubbard has had a difficult life. She was raised by her mother, a single parent, in St. Petersburg, Florida. She has never known her father, and has just set out on a search to find him. She works as a waitress in a little diner, near the famous circus training grounds, and she often serves the performers. Her whole life has given her a dour outlook on life. She seldom, if ever, smiles. Gerald Coe, a clown known as “Jericho,” makes it his ultimate challenge to bring a little joy to her life. One day he appears with a bull dog, who looks as down in the mouth as Wednesday, and presents it to her, saying “This is your Joy.” On one momentous day that she agrees to marry Jerry, he presents her with another surprise: her father!

Thursday’s child has far to go.” 

Thursday Spain is a high school Spanish teacher in a small town just outside Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She has always wanted to travel to Spain, and she finally gets her chance when the local Spanish club decides to take a trip there. On a lowly teacher’s salary she could not afford it, but if she gets enough students to go she will get her airfare free. On the airplane over she meets computer programmer, Raul Espinosa, who is also on his way to fulfill his lifelong dream: to be a matador, just once. They hit it off immediately, seeing the sights of the country together. When he is given the chance to fight the bull, he asks her to come watch him. She does, but when she sees him in danger her heart leaps to her throat and she knows she loves him. As soon as the fight ends, she proposes to him.

Friday’s child is loving and giving.” 

Friday Love is a social worker in Detroit, Michigan. She has come out of college believing she can save the world. She has been warned by her supervisor that she should not take her clients to heart, but she defies him when Guy Miller, a young widower, comes to her for help. His wife died of cancer, and he is left to care for his two children, five-year-old Ashley and seven-year-old Kevin. The final straw was when General Motors had another of their cutbacks, leaving him jobless. They meet the challenge together, establishing a charity for a local church to help meet the needs of the hundreds of other people in the same situation Guy faces.

Saturday’s child works for its living.” 

Saturday Fought has one goal in life: to climb the (corporate) ladder of success. She is a vice-president of a large New York City clothing manufacturer, which would be enough for most women. Not for Saturday. She has her eye set on the CEO position, which will soon become vacant when the current head steps down in retirement. The owner of the company has the spot slated for his son, Brent Lombardo. The only problem, Brent is completely dedicated to his first love--art. People are just beginning to give him the recognition he deserves, and he escorts Saturday to showing after showing. She gradually realizes that there is a rung missing on her upward climb--a personal life. Opposites attract, true, but can they also reach a compromise that will satisfy both of them?

Sunday’s child is fair and wise and good and gay.” 

Sunday DeWitt is a judge in Des Moines, Iowa. She “wields her gavel with a wonderful sense of humor,” according to the article in a national magazine which featured her. The district attorney, Daniel Winnett, has set out to see her disbarred, claiming that her flippant attitude has no place on the bench. Their personal battle heats up when they are stranded in a flood and have to wait for a boat to come and rescue them. The jury is still out on whether they can find happiness together, but the sentence is soon handed down by the superior court.
