I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

  1. I like children’s stories that teach without being preachy. This sounds delightful. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Tess. It’s a lovely story to read with children (as it does allow to explore serious subjects without being preachy or heavy-handed). And it’s short. Have a great New Year!

  2. One feels bombarded by real world pain. Idealized horse lives sounds nice. Thanks for another useful review, Olga. Mega hugs.

    1. Thanks, Teagan. I know exactly what you mean. I hope you have an ideal weekend.

  3. Writers have long idealised the life of horses, and their connection with the humans who have tamed then, and often loved them too. I have never felt much connection with horses myself, to be honest, (perhaps because I was a city-dweller) and prefer to see them roaming free.
    Hopefully, this book will enchant children with that notion.
    Good luck to Cathy with her new book.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete.I think it would be a good way of discussing such things with children who’ve grown up with images of animals that behave like people. Have a great end of the year.

  4. It sounds like a captivating story. I am always an advocate for the books that draw young readers to the Nature. Thank you for sharing, Olga.

    1. I’m sure you could provide wonderful photographs to illustrate the book of a children’s author (or an adult writer, but I think the kids would be fascinated). ♥

      1. Thank you for your kind comment! <3

        1. I think the story of the man who adopts foxes would be wonderful for kids. Happy New Year, Inese!

          1. Thank you Olga! It doesn’t look too happy from where I am now, but I will know more in a couple of weeks. xx

    A lovely storyline! The perfect book for my niece. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. Happy New Year, Olga.

    1. Thanks, Michelle. I’m sure she’ll love it. Have a great new year!

  6. Thank you for sharing this! I love horses and have been following the problems affecting the North American mustangs with some interest and concern. This sounds like a wonderful read which might well interest and inform youngsters about ‘wild’ horses and inspire them to find out more about this beautiful and majestic animal.

    1. It sounds perfect indeed, as the horse gets into many adventures both with other animals and with humans. It would give much to talk about and discuss. It’s not in a genre I tend to read, but it sounded so unique that I had to read it. I hope you enjoy it and you can share with others interested too.Have a great year.

  7. I love animals, so I love books that instill in children the love of animals. Good one. 🙂

    1. A great present for children and a good book to read with them.

Don't be shy! Tell me something!
