    Julia Alvarez vivio su infancia en Republica Dominicana hasta 1960, cuando emigro a los Estados Unidos. Luego de obtener sus titulos de pregrado y postgrado en literatura y creacion literaria, enseno poesia durante muchos anos y publico su primer libro de poemas, Homecoming, en 1984. Ha recibido becas del Fondo Nacional para las Artes y de la Fundacion Ingram Merrill. De como las muchachas Garcia perdieron el acento recibio el premio PEN Oakland/Josephine Miles en 1991, que se entrega a obras que presentan un punto de vista multicultural. En la actualidad, ensena literatura inglesa en Middlebury College.
    Cuando las hermanas Garcia —Carla, Sandra, Yolanda y Sofia— y sus padres huyen de la Republica Dominicana buscando refugio de la persecucion politica, encuentran un nuevo hogar en los Estados Unidos. Pero el Nueva York de los anos sesenta es marcadamente diferente de la vida privilegiada, aunque conflictiva, que han dejado atras. Bajo la presion de asimilarse a una nueva cultura, las muchachas Garcia se alisan el pelo, abandonan la lengua espanola y se encuentran con muchachos sin una chaperona. Pero por mas que intentan distanciarse de su isla natal, las hermanas no logran desprender el mundo antiguo del nuevo.     
        
    Lo que las hermanas han perdido para siempre —y lo que logran encontrar— se revela en esta novela magistral de una de las novelistas mas celebradas de nuestros tiempos.
