Summary
Texan art student Kathleen Boyd has been dreaming about becoming a matador since her beloved father took her to the bullfighting ring when she was just a child. Now a young woman, her disapproving fianc<U+00d4>e and her practical-minded mother see her dream only as a foolish flight of fancy. Nevertheless, Kathleen relocates to Mexico and finds herself under the instruction of Fermin, a retired matador who is intent on asserting his dominance in their partnership. Though taking on a female apprentice is unheard of, Fermin sees Kathleens undeniable talent and promises that shell one day perform at the prestigious Plaza Mexico bullring. While Kathleen struggles to perform alongside the unwelcoming men of Mexicos bullfighting scene, she is befriended by Julio, better known as El CabritoThe Kid. Much to Fermins displeasure, not only does Julio show Kathleen techniques that defy his strict instruction, but a forbidden romance quickly ignites between them. As time passes, Kathleens confidence in her ability increasesthough so too do her suspicions of Fermins intentions. She has become a sensation, selling out arenas as La Diosa Tejana, the Texan Goddess. But while Fermin gets rich, Kathleens pay remains pitiful and her instructors control over her life remains absolute. Will she always be a vehicle for another persons success? Or will she finally face her own moment of truth and seize the success that she has worked toward for so long, in a world that has always belonged to men?
