Sinopsis:

This book is a woman's story of her life and practice as a social worker in the 20th century, the first century of social work in the United States. The social worker is portrayed as a person who has broad and diverse experience in work as in life, one who has a head as well as a heart. The compexity of the identity of the social worker is matched by that of the author's identity as a 20th century woman. A post modernist search for affiliation and connection as well as autonomy is an underlying theme.

The book is also a story of a professional woman's internal struggle to mesh career aspirations with marriage and family expectations imposed upon her by society and by her upbringing. It is a story sure to resonate with the current generation of professinal women who continue to struggle with the very same issues.
