Another Review: A Taste of Life and Love in Australia

10 Jun

Oh happy day! ‘A Taste of Life and Love in Australia’ has been reviewed for the second time.

Today’s reviewer spoke of its “Lovely, spare, melodic prose that simply exuded warmth”,  and “quietly satisfying” outcomes.

I hope you will not think me egotistical by quoting: “Sharp is delicately poetic yet linguistically precise”, and  “crafts her sentences with meticulous attention to metric contour that reflects a mood.”

My previous review, furnished by Australian author Jenny Schwartz, pointed to the book’s humanity and compassion.

Both reviewers gave ‘A Taste of Life and Love in Australia’  a 5 star out of 5 rating. It’s available on Amazon and through other internet sellers.

Overwhelmed as I am by all these heartening words, sadly I need even more to make this book known and accepted by society. I need people :people like you, my blog readers: to spread the word.

Will those of you looking for a gentle volume of vignettes, either for yourself or for others, please take a look at ‘A Taste of Life and Love in Australia’? In the process, you’ll be helping me along, an Australian women writer, and will hopefully find this book to be all that you believed it would be.

    This is a great review! You should be proud!!

    How can a struggling writer get the book out that’s been in her head for years? Any tips?

    Have you read the entire review, Jennifer? It’s on Amazon and Goodreads.

    The only way to write a book is to sit down at the computer, type the first line and let the ideas flow. You really need to have some prior idea of the plot, coupled with a store of life experience and extensive knowledge of words and their meanings. In my experience, it is very tiring, but the wonderful feeling of actually seeing the book makes it all worthwhile, particularly when it meets with the approval of others.
