** spoiler alert ** I read this book for book club. Oh I thought it was fantastic. It held my interest and was quite and education about the Dominican Republic and Trujillo. The ending caused problems in our group. We thought the headstrong sister may have been too inclined to live and die for a cause, when if she would have had some patience she may well have lived and her sisters as well. The author Alvarez is the gringa reporter. I would love to read this book again, but there are so many. One thought I had while reading this book is that in some stylistc ways it wa like the Poisonwood Bible. I will have to check and see which was published first.
