Synopsis:

When Erminia "Minnie" Lopez Rincon was born, she was not breathing, but the attendant working on her tiny body did not give up until Rincon was breathing on her own. So began the life of a Mexican American woman who would not only endure many unforeseen challenges and emotional struggles, but would also eventually rise above it all to find her passion and true calling in life.

In her compelling memoir, Rincon eloquently details her struggles to rise above her humble beginnings living in a railroad camp outside of Chicago, Illinois, with her family of nine. She shares how she coped with life's unforeseen changes by burying her feelings, reading, and doing well in school. Rincon chronicles a difficult childhood only made more challenging by discrimination, the death of her mother, and betrayal by those she trusted. Despite all her obstacles, Rincon matures into adulthood and manages to lead a fairly normal life-until her past finally catches up to her. It is only through therapy that Rincon finally begins to reconcile with her past and realize a long-held, burning desire.

Survival within Two Cultures is the story of one woman's determination to overcome seemingly insurmountable challenges in order to make her dreams come true.

About the Author: Erminia "Minnie" was born in Blue Island, Illinois in 1928. Four years later, her mother died. Changes in her home were constant and never explained. Once she learned to read, she found solace in books, did well through twelve years of schooling and thought she dreamt of college, she realized it was not an option for her. She married and gave birth to five children. Her dream persisted and in 1964 she enrolled at Purdue University and by 1972 had been awarded a B.S and M.S. She is bilingual, an asset in some of her positions, which included Caseworker for Cuban Refugees, consultant in a law firm, therapist and school psychologist. She retired fully in 2010. Currently she is the grandmother and great grandmother of 24 precious beings.
