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.

    Sounds like some fantastic history to be seen. Thanks for bringing the book to our attention Olga <3

    1. Thanks, Debby. It’s a fascinating series for historians, especially those interested in the UK, or for writers thinking of setting their stories there. Have a great week!

  2. This is an excellent series, and I think a ‘must-have’ if you live in the town or city featured. If I was from Barnsley, I would definitely buy a copy. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. Yes, I thought this kind of book would speak to you, for sure, with its mix of images and local stories. Have a fabulous week!

  3. How interesting, Olga. I do love reading about the history of British towns.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. I thought it would appeal to you. I’m not sure if there is one for the area where your mother grew up in, but it’s worth checking.They keep adding onto the series all the time. Have a fantastic week!

  4. Great review Olga. I live in the East Riding so I’m shy of a couple of hours north of Barnsley and have frequented the lovely market town. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks, Kevin. What a small world! I know the East Riding area but not as well as I’d like. I never tired of exploring Yorkshire and the surrounding area.
      Shame I’m quite far now, but one never knows. Have a lovely week.

      1. It’s a beautiful place. 🙂

        1. Absolutely! 🙂

    Thank you for sharing this book, Olga. Great history to remember.

    1. Yes. Especially because there are not many people around who experienced it and remember it, it is especially important to preserve their memories.

      1. inese says:

        Yes, absolutely agree with you.

        1. 🙂

  6. It sounds like this would be a fantastic research source for someone writing fiction about that era!

    1. Indeed! And there are plenty of books about different locations on the series. It’s a treasure trove for writers and researchers. Thanks, Noelle! Al the best and happy summer!
