While grounded in an Australian setting with descriptions of familiar antipodean landscapes, A Taste of Life and Love explores the universal themes of love, desire and marriage.

While I think most of the tales within this collection are perhaps more properly vignettes or scenes rather than short stories, it seems a negligible distinction. Despite their brevity, Sharp neatly encapsulates each story, though there are some subtle links between scenes and characters.

Sharp writes of unrequited love, fateful meetings, romantic declarations and leaps of faith. Thoughtful and charming, each story is a window into the nature of relationships, sometimes blissful, at
other times difficult.

The writing is evocative, inspiring emotion with well-crafted prose and natural dialogue. Sharp’s storytellers are a mix of ages and genders, told in first and third person. It’s an interesting variety of perspectives and Sharp inhabits them well.

A Taste of Life and Love in Australia is one of six volumes by self published Australian author Margaret Lynette Sharp. This collection, contains 28 engaging stories that provide a pleasant afternoon’s reading. ( )
