SISTERS AND RIVALS

posted in: Books | 0

It’s the mid nineteen fifties, and the nascent romance of two young Sydneysiders is about to be challenged. The heroine, Linda, is being courted by an ambitious young carpenter named Harry. Seemingly without effort, he passes the scrutiny of her parents and they encourage her alliance with him. Trouble brews, though, when her sister Tessa lays eyes on him and, despite her engagement to a young accountant, makes her feelings abundantly clear. Will Tessa’s overtures ruin the fledgling love between Harry and Linda?

“A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written Australian romance book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of very unique/colorful characters to keep track of. This could also make another great Australian romantic movie, or mini TV series.”¬†

“There’s a definite sense of Jane Austen in this story, where women are expected to land a good husband and not much more. When Linda finally finds the man of her dreams, her scheming sister throws herself at him. Linda’s resulting inner turmoil is quite real and believable, and she reminded me of Elinor Dashwood in her humble, yet noble, nature. She’s a fascinating character, and she’s very well written.”

Author Note:¬†This is the one and only story I’ve written that was inspired by an idea of my husband, Ron.
