Dragonflies at Night: More Than a Love Story By Anne Marie Bennett Women’s Fiction, Contemporary Romance Paperback & ebook, 365 Pages September 22, 2020 by KaleidoSoul Media
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?

Love on Location
Ben and Savannah, the romantic leads in Dragonflies at Night: More Than a Love Story, fall in love on one side of the United States (Massachusetts), and deepen their love on the other side (California). Sometimes the settings that I create in my fiction are totally imaginary, but in this novel, I have actually been everywhere that our lovers find themselves!
They meet at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, which is a lovely retreat center in Lenox, Massachusetts (ah, the beautiful Berkshires). I have been there many times as a retreater and also as a teacher. Kripalu is a special, sacred place for me.
Savannah lives in Salem (Massachusetts) and she is from Portland (Maine). I lived in Salem for seven years in the 80’s, and I’ve been to Portland many times (Maine is my favorite state and I love being near the ocean).
Ben lives in Los Angeles and New York City. Ben’s friends have a home in Palos Verdes, California. I have been to these places at one time or another also, although I’ve never lived in California or New York. He was born in Seattle, where his parents live now, and Seattle is another favorite place of mine that I’d love to go back to.
What about you? Do you have a favorite state? When you read women’s fiction, do you like to read about places you’ve already been to, or places you’ve never been to, or imaginary places? I’d love to know what you think!
