This volume presents detailed stories of the reasons why six African American professional women quit their jobs. Each woman's story is told through her own voice, through oral-taped interviews and through writing. Their stories are rich and the language is colourful. While readers will see each woman's unique circumstances they will also note the remarkable similarites among the stories and the views expressed therein. An abstract precedes each story. After the stories, the author provides a grounded analysis. The texts of the stories provide the basis for further analysis and theory building.


Methodology; the six narratives; when the spirit speaks; they listen(ed); leaps of faith; toward a grounded understanding; answering the call; politics at work; concluding thoughts.
