Another Review: Reflections of Life and Love in Australia

Reflections of Life and Love in Australia by Margaret Lynette SharpGoodreads_icon_100x100Goodreads-badge-add-plus

It’s been a while since my fourth collection in the ‘Life and Love in Australia’ series was first published, and now I’m delighted to announce its first review, written by Goodreads member, Mark, from the U.S.A. Here it is:

“Reflections” is a collection aptly named, for emotions playing lambent on the water of the spirit, for a mirror held up to fraught relationships, mostly of couples, and for the thoughts to which they all give rise in the reader… and the reviewer. Sharp has a particular knack for exploring and sorting out the unnecessarily complex entanglements of humans in orbit about one another. Among the best offerings here are “And the Rains Came,” about the pretext for a railway “connection” that opens up when the skies do; “Letting Her Go,” about a mother’s ultimate, pained acceptance of her daughter’s romantic autonomy; and “The Bonds of Love,” which has nothing at all to do with bondage, and everything to do with serendipity and reconciliation. Five stars.

This volume contains twenty-eight vignettes and Short Stories, mostly on themes of love and romance. Currently it’s available in paperback only, but  hopefully next year it will be also published on Kindle.
