There are four narrators throughout the book and they are the Mirabal sisters. This allows the author to give us a distinct point of view from all the sisters who are united by bonds that transcend understanding. We get to see up close and personal how each sister reacts and what flows through their head. This is excellent for the book because it is so character driven by all the sisters. This is a story about them and who better to give us insight than the sisters themselves.
