Lexi feels as if her life is falling apart. Her marriage is on the rocks as her husband works every hour God sends, her friends are too busy leading their own lives for them to have any time for her and her job doesn’t give her the purpose and satisfaction which it once did. Lexi is desperate for a fresh start and for a new project and when she claps eyes on Hollingsworth House, she feels as if she has finally found that elusive something which she has been searching for for so long. Compelled to purchase this crumbling and derelict mansion in Yorkshire, Lexi decides to give in to the insistent little voice in her head that is telling her to buy Hollingsworth House and make the property her own. But when Lexi stumbles across an old diary belonging to Allie, an Australian nurse who had worked in France during the First World War, she soon finds herself entangled in a web of illicit desire, strong passion and forbidden love…
As a nurse working on the front line during World War One, Allie knows that she should keep her mind on the job and not get distracted by thoughts of love and romance. But when fate intervenes and she meets Captain Danny Hollingsworth, giving into temptation soon proves inevitable. Overwhelmed by jeopardy, heightened emotions and a staggering fear that each day could be their last, Allie and Danny’s feelings for one another soon escalate. But with so many obstacles standing in their way, does their love have any hope of surviving? Or will this tragic war vanquish all hope of a future for the two of them.
In the present day, Lexi finds herself getting increasingly drawn into Allie and Danny’s story. Although they are divided by time, will Lexi find the answers she has been searching for in Allie’s diary? Will happiness be finally within her reach? Or will the fairy tale ending Lexi has been searching for continue to elude her?

A book guaranteed to make you laugh and cry, Where Dragonflies Hover is first rate storytelling at its finest!
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.
It is 2010 when Lexi finds the diary on the grounds of Hollingsworth House, a house that calls to her very soul, and one she longs to own. At this point in Lexi's life, everything seems to be falling apart around her - her marriage appears to be over, her work is becoming less important to her, and her friends all seem to be struggling with their own issues, but her instincts tell her this house is where she is supposed to be. As Lexi navigates many new and terrifying changes in this story, we get to learn about Allie's life from the pages of her diary - the fear and harsh reality of war, mixed up with the meaning of true love - and as Lexi feels closer to Allie, Allie's words help Lexi figure out her own problems.
WHERE DRAGONFLIES HOVER by AnneMarie Brear weaves history and fiction, past and present effortlessly together in such a way that takes a reader's breath away. With stunning description, deep and meaningful characters, and a beautiful message of love, WHERE DRAGONFLIES HOVER by AnneMarie Brear is truly a book not to be missed.
