Editorial Reviews

Lisa Molina's warm, maternal voice and Latin accent lend a sense of authenticity to Carmen Vasquez and Rosa Gil's insightful self-help guide for modern Latinas.

Vasquez and Gil rely on their experiences as psychotherapists in New York City to provide real-life examples and practical advice on how Latinas can become better equipped to deal with the emotional, professional, and sexual issues that arise when assimilating into a new culture.

Though aimed at Latin American women, Molina's engaging and reassuring delivery help reinforce the universal themes of the book, giving it a cross-cultural appeal.

Publisher's Summary

In a lively, anecdotal manner, the authors show how to balance "old world" values with contemporary North America, whether the issue is juggling career and family demands, turning the traditional marriage into a partnership, awakening and accepting one's own sexuality, seeking help with emotional problems outside the family, or learning to stand up for one's feelings and rights.

Filled with real-life success stories and wise, compassionate advice, The Maria Paradox details how any Latina can enjoy the best of both worlds and become her own person at last.
