Maria has always had to prove she is as good as a man. Her immigrant father had wanted a boy. He couldn’t understand why is daughter wouldn’t take his advice. Maria’s high school teacher knew exactly the kind of career a smart girl should get into. But it wasn’t science. In spite of this, she persisted and got her Ph.D. And now her head of department treats his first female colleague the disdain. Life in the lab is familiar, comfortable. She is looking forward to living her dream. After she arrives in the Biotechnology Department at Newport University, she realizes that she needs to learn the rules of the game if she is to be respected and accepted. This means she has to challenge authority, and sometimes make a stand; even compromise her principles. As a way to try fitting in, she leaves the safety of her laboratory and enters the dating world. She quickly realizes how sheltered she has been, and how bad her decision to date a colleague was. The decisions she makes and the consequences of some of her choices are difficult for her to accept. But she can live with that. The details of the night with Steven keep repeating and repeating in her mind. How could a colleague, a peer do that to her?
