Literary Fiction

From the American Book Award-winning author of Across a Hundred Mountains, a new novel that renders a friendship among four women in Los Angeles, bound together by their Mexican roots and their love of Folklorico dance.

Dancing with Butterflies uses the alternating voices of four women in a dance company called Alegria to weave a story of friendship and love. Yesenia, who founded Alegria with her husband, suddenly finds herself unable to continue dancing and seeks salvation at a plastic surgery clinic in Tijuana. Elean, grief stricken by the death of her child and the end of her marriage, begins to fall dangerously in love with her underage student. Elena's sister, Adriana, wears the wounds of abandonment and becomes unable to discern love from abuse. Soledad, the sweet-tempered undocumented immigrant who designs costumes for the dancers, finds herself stuck back in Mexico where she returns to see her dying grandmother.

Reyna Grande has brought these fictional characters so vividly to life you will imagine you know them.
