From Booklist:
Jaramillo, former ambassador to Honduras, recalls the trajectory of her life from an early childhood of poverty as a shoemaker's child growing up in New Mexico to a life as diplomat and civil rights advocate. Growing up in a close family that emphasized the importance of education to social advancement, Jaramillo overcame her shyness and the low expectations for Hispanic youth in a segregated school system. Later, with a husband, three children, and a factory job, Jaramillo struggled to finish an undergraduate degree. She joined her husband in the teaching profession and got involved in remedial education and teaching English as a second language, which led to an interest in civil rights for Hispanics. Her divorce after 21 years of marriage proved a career catalyst when the Carter administration tapped her as ambassador to the impoverished Central American nation of Honduras. Her childhood poverty helped her relate to the common people; however, balancing the diplomatic goals of the U.S and the local politics of military dictators was a more exacting task. Vanessa Bush
