Book Snapshot

In the time of the Butterflies, is a historical fiction about the murder of Mirable sisters, revolutionaries who committed themselves to the overthrow of the Trujillo dictatorship in the Dominican Republic. Julia Alvarez principally tells the story through Dede the surviving sister though the author also beautifully weaves personal reflections of each sister in her own voice.
