Summary

In the Time of the Butterflies begins on a deserted mountain road in the Dominican Republic in 1960. Three young women from a pious Catholic family are assassinated after visiting their husbands, who had been jailed as suspected rebel leaders. Three decades later, Julia Alvarez brings the Mirabal sisters back to life in this extraordinary novel.
