Strength and Grace is the story of a young Mexican woman who stumbles into becoming a
bullfighter. She so excels that she becomes a great Matador. The catch is all but a few think
she is a man. It is a story of female empowerment within the Mexican male culture of the bullfight.
There are also coming of age aspects to the story as the reader follows her growth from being a
fifteen-year old tomboy to a twenty-five year old woman who spends the majority of her time being a
man. This duality creates gender identity issues that she must face along with all the dangers of
her profession and the tension of her masquerade.
