In 1963, Julia McCarty, nurse at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, met a doctor from El Salvador. After a whirlwind romance, they married. Julia followed Arturo Mendez to El Salvador where she was abruptly thrust in to the Central American culture. She knew nothing of the language or people. Conflict arose over her desire to continue her career in nursing and the second class position of nurses in this environment. This is the story of an American woman caught in the cultural conflict of El Salvador in the 1960's. It is a work of fiction. The story was inspired by the lives of women who embark on the journey of living in other countries and experiencing life in another culture. Ultimately, they are women of great courage, determination and wisdom. Many of these women survive revolution, disappointments and enormous obstacles to happiness. This is the story of one woman's confrontation with cultural barriers that forced her to examine her life in decisive and meaningful ways.
