Summary

An ALA Notable Book. Julia Alvarez's eagerly awaited second novel is a powerful story of courage, innocence, and political martyrdom in the Hispanic Caribbean. Based on actual events--the death of three sisters on November 25, 1960--the novel immerses us in an epoch in the life of the Dominican Republic. The ''Butterflies,'' as they were known, lived daringly and dangerously under a regime that imprisoned, tortured, and killed with impunity. ''Brimming with warmth and vitality . . . Mesmerizing.''--Kirkus Reviews, starred; ''Potent and luminous.''--Philadelphia Inquirer. A BOOK-OF-THE-MONTH CLUB and QUALITY PAPERBACK BOOK CLUB SELECTION.
