Encore by Margaret Lynette Sharp

Encore is the sixth collection of Australian Short Stories written by Sydney author Margaret Lynette Sharp, and edited by her husband Ronald William Sharp, the creator of the Grand Organ in the Concert Hall of the Sydney Opera House.

In common with her previous works, Encore contains a selection of mainly romantic tales, overwhelmingly positive in theme. The author's favourites include 'At Sixteen: Annie's Story','To the Beautiful Brigitte', and 'The Locket'.
Comprising twenty-five stories, this is a highly readable, attractively presented volume.

Mark | 1 comments For anyone tired of relentless angst, Sharp's warm, gentle stories are well worth reading.

Brief excerpt from my review:

The first story of this elegantly-crafted collection authentically captures the moods, from wistfulness to defiance, from petulance to heartbreak, of a teen in transition, as seen from the perspective of an older sister left to be in loco parentis, who proves actually to be a better parent than the ones who call it in, from Paris. This piece sets the tone for the rest of the volume, a highly readable, page-turning anthology of vignettes, probably Sharp's best to date, that offers characters and outcomes that are always a bit more complicated (and better) than we're led to expect.

Margaret Sharp (margaretlynettesharp) | 35 comments As a footnote, I expect that 'Encore' will be the last of my romance anthologies.
Shortly I will be publishing my first novella.
