It was a typical day at the call center Gladys worked at in Manila when she answered a customer service call that would change her entire life. After the man on the other line, Tim, asked her to take down his phone number, something inside Gladys told her she had to call him. Five months, countless phone calls, and a visit to the Philippines over Valentine's Day later, Tim proposed. The two married shortly after, and Gladys prepared to move to America. This down-to-earth memoir follows Gladys as she goes from Pesos to Pennies.
