Feminist physician Isabel Sanchez comes face to face with her own forgotten Mexican heritage when she's assigned to a South Texas clinic. Her outspoken values are in sharp contrast with the traditional Hispanic beliefs of the locals--particularly those of political activist Javier Perez. THough fiercely independent Bel seems to be everything the marriage-minded single dad *doesn't* want in a woman, Javier can't ignore the potent desire that sparks between them. Then his teenaged daughter seems to rebel under Bel's influence, threatening everything Javier stands for--*and* his dream of making Bel his wife. . .
