It was nice to have an epilogue at the end but I did think Allie's story finished a bit too quickly. But a nice read for anyone who likes romance and history combined.
The story begins in the spring of 1945, and begins telling the story of Alexandria Jamieson, known as Allie. Allie is sixty years old at that point, originally from Australia, and was a nurse during WWI. She is writing a diary to tell people about the love of her life, Captain Danny Hollingsworth, and to let people know that true love will overcome any obstacles, including war. When asked who will read it, she simply smiled and said, "Anyone who needs to find it will read it."
The story then takes place in 2010, and introduces the next character, Alexandria O'Connor, known as Lexi. Lexi is married to a doctor, Dylan. For some time now, Lexi has known something wasn't quite right in her life, especially in her marriage. She wants to start a family, but her husband wants to wait for five years. He is so busy with his career and is seldom home, and he feels this just isn't the right time to have a baby. There is also something else Lexi wants, and that is to purchase the Hollingsworth House. Once again, what she wants is not what Dylan wants. He feels the house is just too expensive, and needs too much work done to even make it livable. They constantly argue about this, and this only causes even more problems in their already troubled marriage. Despite this, Lexi continues to be drawn to the house, and feels it speaks to her like nothing has ever done before. She is at the house one day, and comes across a locked box, and after opening it, she finds a diary. She takes the diary with her, and begins to read it...it is the diary Allie wrote.
The story alternates between Allie's story, and Lexi's...and as the story unfolds, we learn about these two women, and the common bond they share. This is a beautifully written story, told in vivid detail, that just brings the story to life. It is about two determined women, not letting anyone or anything stop them from having what they want. Both women experience pain and heartache, and both come out of it even stronger in the end. The characters are well developed and true to life. The parts that tell of the war are intense and heartfelt at the same time. Overall, this is an amazing story, and one I could not put down. It is also a story that will stay with me for a long time. I honestly can't stress enough how wonderful this book truly is! AnneMarie Brear is an amazing storyteller, and I will be looking forward to reading more by her in the future!
I was given an advance digital copy of this book from Choc Lit and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Where Dragonflies Hover is a story about two interesting women. Lexi wants to live in Hollingsworth House. She feels like she belongs there. She's also curious to find out more about Allie. She's fascinated by the diary and it also offers her support. I liked that idea very much. Allie is a strong woman who fights for what she wants. The women have in common that they're willing to go through great lengths to achieve what they have in mind. Their determination is fabulous and it's what I liked best about them. They're interesting and it was nice to find out more about their lives.
Where Dragonflies Hover is a quick and easy read. It's a wonderful and entertaining story with likable main characters. I enjoyed reading this book very much. I loved reading about both the past and the present and couldn't wait to find out what would happen next in the lives of the two women. I think AnneMarie Brear has written an enjoyable read about love, war and a very special house.
