Kristel (kristelh) | 699 comments In the Time of the Butterflies was an interesting read, the author came to the US from the Dominican Republic with her family as exiles from the dictator. This story is about the Mirabel sisters. The author is quite clear at the end of the book that this is not a biography or even historical fiction because she didn't have that much that was factual but still it was a learning experience to read this story. My granddaughters used to watch Barbie Mariposa when visiting. I never realized it was based on real sisters. (The Barbie movie is not worth watching).

I read this book years ago and the story haunted me.

Denizen (den13) | 1138 comments I've been thinking of reading this ever since it was released. So many books, so little time.
