Overview
A story filled with provoking and compelling voices, this bestselling novel takes readers on a journey that involves relationships, politics and perilous adventure. Author Julia Alvarez uses her creative and detailed flair for storytelling to take readers back to the year 1960 in the Dominican Republic. As we come to find, this is a time filled with tension and change, as we take a look at the lives of four sisters trapped in the middle of it all. The story begins with tragedy – three sisters found dead next to the wreckage of their Jeep at the bottom of a cliff in the Dominican Republic. What seems like a truly unfortunate car accident, however, turns to be much more. For one, there is a fourth sister who wasn’t found at the wreck. And secondly, these four beautiful sisters are not just ordinary civilians, they’re the Las Mariposas, or “The Butterflies.” The sisters are well known in the Dominican Republic because of their opposition to the dictatorship of General Rafael Leonidas Trujillo. Within Alvarez’s carefully crafted narrative about these sisters living under a dictatorship is also a myriad of other wonderful stories, as Alvarez shares with us stories of their childhood, from things like hair ribbons to boys they had crushes on. Through this interweaving Alvarez creates a timeless story that hones in on history, love and life. With themes of politics and violence, this title is recommended for readers at least fourteen years of age, or with at least a high school reading level.
