As more of a science fiction and fantasy reader, Mariposa represented something of a departure for me. That said, I love any story with captivating characters, engaging dialogue, and a deeply engrossing plot. Mariposa checked all those boxes and then some. I didn’t just need to find out what happened to Meg, Amelinda, and the rest, I felt like they needed me to keep reading so they could finish telling their stories. It’s that rare quality that made Mariposa jump off the page for me, and why it’s easily one of my top 10 reads of the year so far. For fans of ghost stories and magical realism, this one is a must-read.
I wasn't sure what to expect as this was the first time I had ever read any of the author's work, but may I say this? I was completely blown-away by her beautiful prose. Once I settled in and began living within the pages of a fairly complex story, time flew by, as did the daylight hours, nighttime hours, etc. I read the entire novel in two sittings. That is the highest complement I can ever give a novel. I am, unfortunately, easily distracted.
Mariposa: A Love Story is both an elegant and an eloquent telling of an ill-fated love that requires more than a little mending of two hearts. More than a little reconciliation, or even conciliation. More than a corporeal presence, or two, is needed to pull off a gratifying resolution. It requires a special kind of connectedness, forged through love and adversity, one that transcends what we may believe about the here and the hereafter.
The author has an amazing way with words, such that it lifted me from the pages of the story into a sensory environment filled with hope and promise, despite a good bit of a mayhem. Yes, I lost a lot of sleep reading this book. It was worth it.
Lots of culture and nuances and descriptions that were incalculable. Charming and lovable characters. A complex story smoothly delivered. The cat.

I’m not familiar with the New Orleans area, so I found all of the information on its history and folklore fascinating and enjoyed the descriptions of areas in the city. Well written and entertaining is the short description for this book, and I enjoyed reading it.
