"Marriage can be the most rewarding and the most challenging of all human relationships, especially an intercultural marriage. Poignant stories, edited by Gloria Hurh, vividly reveal the genuine value of following the inner self as each woman defends her love across racial lines in spite of opposition. Mrs. Hurh's integrative work includes elements of historical, socio-cultural and personal reflections by women who have made a profound contribution to making this world a more harmonious and loving global village." -Inn Sook Lee, Professor-Adjunct, Princeton Theological Seminary Author of Passages to the Inner Self: The Development of Self Integration for Asian American Women Twelve American women tell about their lives married to Korean husbands.
