|(Not Robert Sharp)|
Anyway, Robert Sharp's "Man May Love" is about a nurse named Claire who is not only tired of men in her care who propose to her, but of rejecting such men. With the latest, Geoffrey, Claire decides to make a deal, a deal that won't compromise her nursing ethics. If, a month after his discharge from the hospital, he is still interested she will consider his proposal.
I won't say how it ends, but it's a humourous tale, even it's somewhat old fashioned in its portrayal of women. I'd read more by Sharp, but I'm not sure if he ever wrote anything else! Kind of cool though that this is a contest entry from almost 100 years ago, and it still has life.
