In the Mexico where Maria Hinojosa was born, being a successful woman was defined by one thing -- becoming a traditional mother. But there has never been anything traditional about this award-winning radio and television journalist. By the time she reached her thirties, Maria Hinojosa had established a very exciting career. But with the birth of her first child, her son Raul, she began to discover the meaning of what really matters.

With the insight and passion of her award-winning journalism, Hinojosa takes us on a journey of family lessons and spiritual searching, of romance and intimacy, and of ambition and maternal love. In powerful flashbacks and flash-forwards and with colorful stories and characters from her life, she tells us a story of self discovery and of the fears, joys, and challenges that come with being a woman today.
