When Farrah Ferand, my heroine from Evening of the Dragonfly, sees a dragonfly or groups of them, she feels optimism. Although they seem somehow connected to the death of her grandfather and then the death of her mother, she believes sighting of the dragonflies is like seeing the spirits of her departed loved ones.
They are a symbol of their love. They bring her optimism.
