Last Saturday seemed set to unfold like any other day. I’d sat down at the computer, checking the e-mails, Googling a few items: the normal things I’d done countless times before. But then I saw it: ‘A Taste of Life and Love in Australia’ had been reviewed by an Australian author!
Before my startled, disbelieving eyes I read her review. I should say, I tried to read it, because before I was half way through I lost my focus. I was, in a word, stunned.
The reviewer, Jenny Schwartz, has a string of published titles to her credit, including a play. She writes an informative, professional-looking blog that focuses on books. In her eyes, ‘A Taste…’ had made the grade!
Let me quote:’ ‘ A Taste of Life and Love in Australia’ by Margaret Lynette Sharp is a collection of gentle, heartwarming stories… ‘ ‘: ‘draw you into a personal experience’ : ‘easy rhythm of the dialogue’: ‘these stories feel distinctly Australian to me’ : ‘compassionate, entertaining humanity’.
Jenny has rated this book five stars out of five. Her review is linked to the Australian Women Writers Challenge, as well as other sites.
