Overview

Heart is a collection of three stories about just love.
It features "The Little Ugly Duck", Cynthia's remarkable beauty makes her gain fame and admiration but not love, consequently disappointment and sadness are the prize for such a comeliness. Unexpectedly she finds love in the most unthinkable place after suffering a terrible accident which turns upside down her own existence.
"The Writer", a young lady whose big expectations about love are those depicted in fairy tales and simple love can't fulfill her wish. Ironically a writer that builds worlds of fiction, but whose life isn't led in the lines of his fantasy, is the man who shows her what true and real love is about.
And the last story that completes the collection is "A Marriage of Convenience", one story of a girl and boy, from Italian families respectively, who find the most sought in life -without searching for, and they do not by a lovely casualness but by one unpleasant fact.

Editorial Reviews

Elizabeth Torres
On "The Little Ugly Duck". That description of her beauty as "the dream of the young and the desire of the old" was brilliant.
Jasmine Lewin
I love the stories Oliver. They really makes you think. Your stories are always from the heart.
Lingchen Dorji
I just went trough the short story, "The Little Ugly Duck". I found it a wonderful piece.
Erin O’Riordan
Each of the three love stories in this slim volume is a delight, though each incorporates romance and sorrow. Each couple is tested by a time of crisis that determines whether they will stay together. Oliver Frances’ straightforward writing style, reminiscent of classic European fairy tales, will be enjoyed by romantic souls from the teenage years and up.
R Jeffreys
“Great, is a word I use to describe what I’ve read only on rare occasions; but your work is very, well crafted, fluid and emotionally evocative.”
