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’ve enjoyed a number of Tracy Chevalier’s books and still have At the Edge of The Orchard to read but will add this one to the tbr pile as your review makes me think I’ll enjoy it very much.

    1. Thanks, Mary. I think you will, especially with your interest in architecture and history. Enjoy your week!

  2. I have read ‘Pearl Earring’, and loved it. (The film too)
    This sounds like it is set in a period that might appeal to me.
    Thanks, Olga.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. I think you will appreciate it as well, and I must catch up on more of her novels. Have a good week!

    Olga, you always find the most interesting books. You are responsible for half the obesity of my Kindle and TBR lol <3

      Thank you, Debby! 😉 Tracy Chevalier is always a safe bet. Enjoy your week! (Oh, and you add not only books but also places to visit to my list)!

  4. Your review fascinated me, Olga. I like that you mention how she brought out the needlepoint. When an author “educates” me about a craft it adds to my reading experience. Best wishes to Tracy. Have a wonderful rest of the week. Hugs on the wing!

    1. Thanks, Teagan. Yes, Tracy Chevalier is great at that. I also learned a lot about trees thanks to one of her books, and she can make any topic gripping. This one was interesting to me anyway, but she has a beautiful way of integrating it into the story. Have a fantastic rest of the week and good look with your launch party!

  5. This is very interesting, Olga. An overlooked period of history.

    1. It is, and the attention to detail is amazing. I am sure you’ll enjoy it, Robbie. ♥
