Mariposa Intersections by Bruno Huber is the story of two people who came from different walks of life but destiny brought them together. Rafael and Gabriela were young when they first met, so it was inevitable that they drew apart. Years later, Gabriela is now a reporter for a newspaper and Rafael is part of an activist group that is trying to stop a nuclear power plant secretly working on a lake in Mexico. They had no idea that they would meet again in the future and when they do, they meet under circumstances that are less than ideal for them to rekindle any kind of relationship. While people more powerful than them are trying to retain control, Rafael and Gabriela are standing up for what is right. What can a little resistance do when they are fighting against something too big for them?

This novel was very different than what I expected it to be. I thought it would be one of those romances that just had an element of suspense or thriller to it; however, I was proven wrong the moment I started reading. It goes beyond a romantic thriller. The story has an intense plot and shows a side of Mexico I never read about before. The author showed a Mexico with real people, not just a vacation spot. The characters were very dynamic, they changed and grew with time and they took notice of that change. Gabriela and Rafael are both realistic; they have flaws that they don’t like and they have this urge to find what they want, regardless of if they need it or not. They brought a sense of direction to the story and added new layers to it with their impressive backgrounds. Mariposa Intersections by Bruno Huber was an absolute pleasure to read. An interesting story that seemed very realistic!
