Description

In 1960 in the Dominican Republic, three young women from a pious Catholic family were assassinated after visiting their husbands, who had been jailed as suspected rebel leaders. The Mirabal sisters became mythical figures in their country, where they are known as Las Mariposas (the butterflies). Three decades later, Alvarez brings the Mirabal sisters back to life in an extraordinary novel. Each of the sisters speaks in her own voice. Beginning as young girls in the 1940s, their stories vary from hair ribbons to gun-running to prison torture. Their story is framed by their surviving sister who tells her own tale of suffering and dedication to the memory of Las Mariposas. This inspired portrait of four women is a haunting statement about the human cost of political oppression.
