A dragonfly brings a mother’s love to a grieving daughter.
Meet Savannah, the thirty-something owner of Life Celebrations, a party planning business. Despite losing both parents as a teenager, Savannah is creating a positive life for herself, surrounded by friends and co-workers who are now her family. But she also has a secret—as much as she wants to settle down and have children, she is afraid to, for fear of getting cancer and having to leave them without their mother, as she herself was left behind years ago.
Meet Deirdre Rose, Savannah’s mother. She continues to watch over Savannah, who feels deeply connected to her mother whenever she sees a dragonfly.
Now meet Ben, a thirty-something recording artist who is good-looking, talented, and a household name. Despite his fame, Ben is lonely. He trusts few people because it seems everyone wants something from him instead of getting to know who he really is.
Savannah and Ben cross paths when they meet at a yoga retreat in the Massachusetts Berkshires. They are drawn to each other’s creativity and outlook on life. She sees beyond his celebrity and he admires her strength in what she’s had to overcome.
What happens when the retreat ends and they go their separate ways? Will they be able to make a long distance relationship work? Can Savannah put aside her fears, and will Ben allow himself to be truly vulnerable?
Above all . . . what message do Deirdre Rose and Dragonfly have for both of them?
I like how this story has three main characters, Savannah, Deirdre Rose and Ben. Savannah is a young woman who has her own business, she has been through it and as a teenager has lost her parents, she has a secret and is afraid to tell anyone. Deirdre Rose is Savannah’s mum, she has a thing for dragonflies as they make her feel connected with her mum, and Ben is a guy who is handsome and successful but deep down he is lonely. When Savannah and Ben meet at a retreat, they are drawn to each other, will they tell each other their secrets or will they be wrapped up forever. I love the way the dragonflies play a major part in the story and from now on I will really appreciate them. I enjoyed this book.
