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.


Audible Editor 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.
