Sisters and Rivals – Margaret Lynette Sharp

It’s the early 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?
