In the Dominican Republic in 1960, under the brutal dictatorship of "El Jefe" Trujillo, three young wives/mothers were assassinated for their opposition to the government. The Mirabal sisters (nicknamed "the Mariposas" or "the Butterflies" in the revolutionary underground movement) each tell their powerfully emotional personal stories via this inspiring work of historical fiction. This special 25th anniversary edition of In the Time of the Butterflies is a tale of freedom, courage, love, and indomitable sisterhood you won't soon forget! (CH)
