From Publishers Weekly  Fifteen tales vividly chronicle a Dominican family's exile in the Bronx, focusing on the four Garcia daughters' rebellion against their immigrant elders. Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc.  Author Julia Alvarez and her family escaped from the Trujillo regime in Dominican Republic when she was 10. In Before We Were Free she imagines, through the stories of her cousins and friends, how it was for those who stayed behind.  A tale of courage and sisterhood set in Dominican Republic during the rise of the Trujillo dictatorship. A blend of fact and fiction, In the Time of the Butterflies is inspired by the true story of the three Mirabal Sisters.

"Quisqueya LA Bella is a collector's item which needs to be read and guarded carefully on the shelf of those seriously interested in the Caribbean. This book should be required reading for those making their first trip to the island. It doesn't read like the conventional history text. It flows lyrically like the waves of the Caribbean itself." An added feature of this book explains the "dominicanismos", language particular to Dominicans that is heard in everyday speech"
