    1. At Sixteen: Annie's Story (the truth, but not at seventeen)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, [...]

    2. Encore by Margaret Lynette Sharp is an anthology of short romance stories. They are mostly based in and around Sydney, Australia, with the stories centering around young as well as older people. The variation of theme makes each story different, with most of them having a delightful little twist which more often than not made me smile.My favourite story was actually the first one, At Sixteen: Annie’s Story.With sixteen year old Annie living with her sister Sarah, and husband William because th [...]

    3. Margaret Sharp is an author with a deep understanding of human nature, reflected beautifully in Encore, her collection of short romantic stories.All sorts of elements play a part in these stories: fate, love, betrayal, family and relationships, just for a start.On the surface, the short tales are fairly simple, but appearances are deceptive, as the stories show. These stories are glimpses of incidents and happenings which become turning points for the characters. Running behind all the character [...]

    4. Encore by Margaret Lynette Sharp is a collection of 25 beautiful short stories. Most of these stories tend to be very short. This very shortness of the short stories makes it difficult to appreciate them for what they are. However, the very length of the reading makes the reader more aware of what moves below the surface. Each story has its own charm and touches you in a different way. I loved reading almost all of these small pieces. These stories are full of rich and sparkling entertainment, f [...]

    5. Encore is a lovely book of 25 short stories by Margaret Lynn Sharp, her sixth self published collection.Sharp's characters are a mix of ages and genders, whose stories are told in the first and third person. This results in an interesting variety of perspectives on humanity, relationships and romance. I particularly liked Dear David, written in an epistolary format, about a rekindled romance, Just the Shot, about a grandfathers gift to his grandson, and The Locket, the story of a secret love. De [...]

    6. With twenty-five titles to read and digest, there's a variety of themes to explore: although love and romance feature very prominently.Written from the point of view of characters of both sexes and a wide range of ages, the thread of positivity runs strong throughout.My favourite tale is probably 'To The Beautiful Brigitte'. It concerns love letters written in French. There is a twist to this tale which, if revealed, would spoil a reader's enjoyment, so I'll say no more.With today's lifestyles r [...]

    8. Is there such a thing as fate? Years ago my piano teacher told me that she loved paintings that included a forked road. The reason was that when she graduated she had the opportunity to decide whether to become a concert pianist and travel or to get married and raise a family. She chose the latter. Eventually she became a piano teacher, a wife and a mother, but she always wondered how her life would have been had she decided to travel instead. In these short stories, aptly named Encore, Ms Sharp [...]

    9. These light, easy to read, snack sized stories cover so many different viewpoints, situations, characters and outcomes, a testament to her talent that they all came out of one authors mind.My favourites were the stories comprising letters / emails being written.See my review also at:amazon/product-revie.on/product-reviews.on/product-reviews/.on/product-revi
