My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Twenty-one-year-old Amanda thinks that she and Kevin, a guy from the right side of town, are falling in love. Doubts creep in, though – doubts that threaten to undermine her self-esteem, her contentment, and their fledgling love. Will their relationship survive her meeting with members of Kevin’s well-to-do, snobbish family? Or will fate contrive to offer her a different, wholly unforeseeable pathway?
Set in Sydney, Australia, during the 1950’s, this story by award-winning author Margaret Lynette Sharp offers an engaging read for lovers of sweet romance.
Genre: Romance, New Adult
Length: 111 pages
Release date: February 8, 2016
What had seemed to me to be ample time disappeared as my thoughts returned time and time again to Kevin and the girl…Who was she? No-one of my acquaintance…
As I alighted from the bus in Phillip Street, I forced myself to smile. Why spoil the time with Sally, who was, above all else, a loyal friend…
This book introduces you to Amanda, in love with Kevin until her confidence shatters when seeing him with another girl.
With Uncertain Love, Margaret Lynette Sharp provides us with a romantic novella about a young woman and her insecurity. Once again, the readers find themselves in Australia of the 1950s, including the mindsets of that era. Romance is not my typical genre, therefore I really like that this novella is not a hard-core romance. The story ‘has soul’ and gives a good insight in Amanda’s feelings. The story is touching, makes the readers remember their feelings they had at that age. I automatically tried to cheer Amanda on; she is a very likeable character. The characters are real enough to be family members, friends or acquaintances. I had a good time reading Uncertain Love.
