Publisher's Summary

Vivas en su jardín is the memoir of the only survivor of the Mirabal sisters, killed by Dominican dictator Rafael Trujillo, an event made famous by Julia Álvarez in her book In the Time of the Butterflies. Four sisters (known as the Butterflies) founded a movement defying Trujillo’s dictatorship, and three died for their beliefs. Dedé Mirabal gives readers unparalleled insight into the lives of three modern heroines.

El testimonio valiente y vibrante de la única sobreviviente de las Hermanas Mirabal, asesinadas cruelmente por el tirano Rafael Leónidas Trujillo. Dedé Mirabal nos cuenta la verdadera historia de Patria, Minerva y María Teresa y de la férrea lucha de sus hermanas por vivir en libertad y de sus esfuerzos junto a un pueblo oprimido por una sangrienta dictadura.

Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.

Happy to have found this book

I haven't finished this yet but it will take me a while (I'm listening in Spanish to learn the language better) and I wanted to write the review quickly. So far I'm really intrigued by this book. Anyone who has read "En el tiempo de las mariposas" should love this story as well-sad as it is-and it's amazing that there is actually an introduction by Dedé Miraba herself. I've listened to it over and over again and it's priceless. With as few great selections as there are in Spanish to listen to, I'm thrilled to have found this. Me encanta. Es precioso.
