ABOUT THE BOOK

There is nothing like a funeral to unravel the ghosts of the past.

At her husband’s funeral, Debra hears of a reunion in a place she once lived. But is it ever the same second time around? Will it be enough to help her heal, for her troubled son to reconnect with his roots. Her friend, Jo has a similar question as she balances the relentless demands of her adult daughter and aging mother. Muso friend Mike, struggling with the aftermath of his divorce, hopes to rekindle the joy of playing to an adoring expat crowd.

On this life-affirming journey, three friends find lost love and renew valuable friendships. They discover that while loss is something you eventually work through, love stays with you forever.

Where Dragonflies Dream will take you into the hearts of ordinary people facing everyday problems regardless of time and place.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Moira Yeldon lives in Perth, but spent 12 years living in Brunei, Southeast Asia which inspired her to write her two latest books. Where Sunbeams Fall is her second novel, and she has just released the sequel, Where Dragonflies Dream, set in the same location 20 years later. Her first novel, Chasing Marigolds is a memoir inspired from travelling to India which was released in 2019.

A love of writing motivated her to complete a course in creative writing twenty years ago and she has been writing ever since. This life-affirming journey has taken her along winding paths and off the beaten track, to many exotic locations such as the tiny Shangri-La of Bandar Seri Begawan where her latest story is set.

A member of the Australian Society of Authors, the Romance Writers of Australia, the Society of Women Writers of Western Australia, and the South Fremantle Writers Centre, Moira regularly contributes articles and participates in writing workshops.

After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts from Murdoch University, Moira completed a Graduate Diploma in Education at Curtin University and lectured for many years in English language, communication, and literacy. She has taught Indonesian and Malay language and is a qualified yoga teacher. She also publishes a blog that you can follow on her website at https://moirayeldon.com and has author profiles on most social media platforms.
