"i am not going to sit back and watch my babies die, Lord, even if that's what you in your great wisdom decide" - Patria

- from In the Time of the Butterflies, by Julia Alvarez, page 162

Dear Ms. Alvarez,

I can't decide which sister is my favorite.

I love Minerva's passion, and Maria Teresa's sweetness that turns into commitment. And Patria's devotion.

I think I love Dede most of all, though, her solidness, and being there, and wanting to be part of it all but also wanting her family to be safe.

I hated the ending, because I wanted them to turn around in that car and not get trapped.

Keep writing.
