Although she dazzled Argentina at the end of 19 century as the first woman to become a doctor, Cecilia Grierson is haunted by disturbing dreams. Cecilia believed she had left the traumas of past relationships behind— but when chance brings her first love back into her life, Cecilia finds she wants closure. This portrait of an incredible woman depicts the meaning of life, the power of love, and how it eludes us.

"Standing Tall" is a moving story set in the progressive era of the Gilded Age. From the Pampas to Buenos Aires and to Paris, "Standing Tall" reveals much of the vibrant culture and realities of life in South America, in a book replete with historical details, personal conflicts and love.

About the Author

There is a saying in her native country, Brazil, that, "every dentist has a little bit of artistry and craziness inside." The first part must be true, at least, when speaking of Debora G. De Farias. Graduated in Dentistry from the University of Brasilia, followed by a Master's Degree in Health Sciences, she also obtained her equivalent D.D.S degree from the University of Florida when she moved to the United States in 2001. Debora is passionate about her health career, literature and arts. An avid reader since the age of four, she grew up surrounded by books, fascinated especially by the true stories of those unknown heroes and heroines that are part of our history. This is one of the main reasons she began the writing journey with her first historical novel, Standing Tall.

Debora lives in Jacksonville, Florida, with her husband, Toan Nguyen, and their son, Andrew. When not writing, reading, or promoting beautiful smiles, Debora can be found painting. Her art reflects her interest in travel and culture, the realistic depictions of the transformative effects of light and color.
