She is a compassionate, mature and maternal person. The answer becomes apparent as you read Loving Mr Spock. When Barbara met Danny, she immediately recognised that he was not a typical young man and certainly not her equal in terms of social understanding. She describes him as the kind of man you would not obviously fall for. However, he was the handsome stranger who captivated her heart and released from within her powerful maternal and protective instincts. Barbara and Danny found that they had many interests in common and she initially found his childlike characteristics charming and endearing. Danny found in Barbara his mentor, social interpreter and someone to mother and father him. The story of their relationship is written in the style of a conversation between the author and the reader as though you are best friends.
