Staff Recommendation: In The Time of Butterflies

Told from the perspective of the four Mirabel sisters, this is a heartbreaking story of life in the Dominican Republic under the Trujillo dictatorship and a fictional tribute to their real-life women who paid the ultimate price for resisting tyranny. Alvarez starts out gently, but the tension mounts as the sisters try to hold onto their ideals and each other in the face of growing danger.
