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.

    You are busting my Kindle at the seams with your grand reviews Olga. This is another I’m adding to my Amazon list. I don’t know how on earth you have the time to write and read so many books. I’m jealous! Lol 🙂 x

    1. Thanks, Debby. I know we all do the same and try to combine several things. I exercise every morning, at home, and I listen to books as I do, and I try and do the same when I’m doing any chores that don’t require much focused attention. And I carry my Kindle wherever I go, just in case I end up having to wait for something or with spare time on my hands (not often). And I don’t watch much telly, so sometimes I go to bed with a good book. This one is a fabulous read and I hope to read more books by the author.
      Have a fabulous Thursday!

        Yes, I hear you about the ‘stolen moments’. Any time I have to head out for an appointment or a subway ride my Kindle goes with me too. I should try getting to bed a little earlier to last longer as that’s where I do most of my reading. Depends how long I last, lol. 🙂

        1. I know. And it can be a bit risky too, as sometimes you get reading and by the time you check the time is much later than you realised. ♥

            Oh, I live that most nights lol 🙂 x

          2. 😉

  2. I like your listed quotes, and cannot deny the obviously good writing style. Perhaps because I have no children, I often feel tat books ‘tugging at the heartstrings’ of readers are a little obvious. But I trust your judgement, Olga.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. It’s a great book and I think you’d appreciate the UK points of view, although I know what you mean. I have no children either, but like my friend’s children, I quite enjoy those in books. 🙂

    1. It is. I think you’d enjoy it, Sally. Have a great Thursday! ♥

  3. Lovely review, Olga! I have not yet read this author’s previous book, A Boy Made of Blocks, but after reading about this one, I just might have to. The entire feeling of Days of Wonder is absolutely heartwarming, and I love the idea of experiencing the lives of this father-daughter duo, along with the crazy characters of the theatre.

    1. Thanks, Vashti. I thoroughly recommend both of the author’s books. Although the setting and the circumstances are different in each, both books create very likeable characters and you end up with a very positive feeling. Have a great weekend!

      1. Wonderful, thanks! 😀 xx

    This is a great review, Olga. I do love the idea of a book like this and books about relationships are my favourite kinds of reads.

    1. From your reviews, I think you’d love this one, Robbie. Have a great weekend!

  5. Ha! I loved the quote you used from “Hannah.” I relate to that!
    Thanks for this mindful review, Olga. Hugs.

    1. She is a fabulous character. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it. Have a lovely weekend, Teagan. ♥
