Publisher Description

As beguiling as the novels of Alice Hoffman, Adriana Trigiani, Aimee Bender, and Sarah Addison Allen, Season of the Dragonflies is a story of flowers, sisters, practical magic, old secrets, and new love, set in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

For generations, the Lenore women have manufactured a perfume unlike any other, and guarded the unique and mysterious ingredients. Their perfumery, hidden in the quiet rolling hills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, creates one special elixir that secretly sells for millions of dollars to the world’s most powerful—movie stars, politicians, artists, and CEOs. The Lenore’s signature perfume is actually the key to their success.

Willow, the coolly elegant Lenore family matriarch, is the brains behind the company. Her gorgeous, golden-haired daughter Mya is its heart. Like her foremothers, she can “read” scents and envision their power. Willow’s younger daughter, dark-haired, soulful Lucia, claims no magical touch, nor does she want any part of the family business. She left the mountains years ago to make her own way. But trouble is brewing. Willow is experiencing strange spells of forgetfulness. Mya is plotting a coup. A client is threatening blackmail. And most ominously, the unique flowers used in their perfume are dying.

Whoever can save the company will inherit it. Though Mya is the obvious choice, Lucia has begun showing signs of her own special abilities. And her return to the mountains—heralded by a swarm of blue dragonflies—may be the answer they all need.

Great BookBub find

Every once in awhile I chance upon an interesting BookBub offer that turns out to be a gem of a read. Season of the Dragonflies was such a find. Normally I abhor multi-voice narrations but the transitions from one voice to another were smooth, not jarring. The characters became very special to me. I recommend this sweet novel to all women who enjoy a tender fantasy.

Season of the Dragonflies

Bravo on this, Sarah Creech's first book!!!! It was a delightful read; there were numerous times when it was difficult to put down. The characters' personalities were well developed as the storyline grew. It was a pleasure to read. I'm so looking forward to Sarah's next book. Please hurry, Sarah.
