Reviews from Goodreads: A Taste of Life and Love in Australia

25 Sep

As many followers are aware,  so far there are six self published books bearing my name as author, and my Sydney Opera House organ builder husband Ronald Sharp as editor. Of these, the most reviewed by far has been my second, ‘A Taste of Life and Love in Australia’.

‘A Taste…’ is a collection of heartwarming vignettes and short stories: the sort that is written to please those from early adulthood right through to mature years. Readers from twenties to nineties have been warm in their praise of this, my particular favourite in the four volume ‘Life and Love in Australia’ series.

So today, prompted by the social book network Goodreads, I offer a selection of reviews from their site. I hope you will take the time to read and consider these snippets.

Not all the stories end happily, but alas! this is so in real l… …more

A Taste of Life and Love in Australia was a great read. I read it at night when all was quite. Story after story I felt as if I was there, especially at the beautiful beach scenes. I appreciate such a book after having to endure a busy day. Margaret Sharp did an outstanding job in describing the outdoors in Australia.
