    In this extraordinary novel, the voices of four sisters—Minerva, Patria, María Teresa killed in a supposedly accidental wreck, and the survivor, Dedé—speak across the decades to tell their own stories, from hair ribbons and secret crushes to gunrunning and prison torture, and to describe the everyday horrors of life under Gen. Rafael Leondias Trujillo’s rule in the Dominican Republic.

    Tickets cost $10, which can be redeemed for a $10 credit toward any book purchase at Books & Books.
