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 am a big fan of Wharton’s book, (and the film) The Age Of Innocence, so I suspect I would enjoy this one, Olga. I can also see how it can provide great reference material for anyone writing about that period in history.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. Yes, I am also fan of her work and I’ve read a few of her other novels as well. She is mentioned a fair bit, and, of course, she had first-hand knowledge. It’s full of interesting tidbits of information. Have a great week.

  2. Hi Olga. I really appreciate your review on this one. I think the way she has divided the book will be helpful to my inner research geek, so I’m very glad you mentioned that. I’m off to look for a copy. Hugs on the wing!

    1. Thanks, Teagan. I did think of you as I read it, and I wouldn’t mind having a paper copy of it myself. Have a fabulous week, Teagan!

      1. Yes, for a reference book I’d like a paper copy, but not with moving. ( I should have just waited and got the paper one after I get there, but so much on my mind…) I admit I nearly balked at the Kindle price, which seems really excessive for an e-book. I went ahead and got the Kindle version while I still have some money.

        1. My ARC copy had problems, but considering it’s a University Press Book, I’m sure the final version will be quite polished. And, although I always forget about it, we can return Kindle Books as well. I know well what you mean about paper copies, although I’ve just received a load today.
          All the best.

  3. Sounds like an informative and interesting read, Olga – and a good resource for someone writing a book set in that time!

    1. Thanks, Noelle. That’s what I thought. I wouldn’t have thought it breaks new ground, but it is a good read and as reference books go, it feels quite complete. Have an excellent week!
