About this audiobook

Ellas eran las cuatro hermanas Mirabal-simbolos de una esperanza desafiante en un pais ensombrecido por la dictadura y la desesperacion. Sacrificaron sus vidas, seguras, y confortables, en nombre de la libertad. Ellas eran "las Mariposas," y en esta novela extraordinaria, Patria, Minerva, Maria Teresa, y Dede nos cuentan, a traves de las decadas, sus propias historias. Desde anecdotas sobre lazos para el pelo y secretos enamoramientos al contrabando de armas y las torturas en la carcel. Con ellas aprendemos los horrores cotidianos de la vida bajo el dictador dominicano Trujillo. A traves del arte y la magia de la aclamada e imaginativa novelista Julia Alvarez, la dramatica y vibrante vida de estas martirizadas mariposas toma forma en una historia calida, brillante y desgarradora en la que se nos muestra el incalculable coste humano derivado de la opresion politica.
