"In the Time of the Butterflies by Julia Alvarez really affected me as a young teen when I read it. In the Mirabal sisters, who take turns telling the story, I saw parts of myself reflected.

Thinking through Theme Step 1: The title "In the time of the butterflies" has to do with the story, as the butterflies being Dede, Patria, Minerva, and Maria. The beginning " In the time" goes with the events that the girls lived. So I feel that the Title of the novel does relate to the events that happen in the novel with the Mirabal Sisters.
