From the Publisher:
Here are the stories of 8 womnen immigrants, their struggles to learn the landguage, adapt to the culture, find jobs and raise their children. They talk frankly about why they had to leave their countries and how they have coped in the U.S. They want people to know they are more than housekeepers, manicurists, and farm laborers--they have hearts and they have stories. Enhanced with 45 photos and 34 historical note boxes.
