There's more to the Caribbean than Exotic Vacations!

Before We Were Free by Julia Alvarez

If you love learning about history and traveling to a foreign country, this book is for you. It follows the story of a girl growing up during the Trujillo dictatorship in the Dominican Republic. You will learn about the life and culture there, encounter an engaging set of characters, and gain a more global perspective on life by reading this book. I have read all of Julia Alvarez’s books and she is one of my favorite authors, so I highly recommend all of her books.
