About this 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.
