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.

    Wow, well you know I’m one of those fascinated with WWII history, being a nonfiction author, so I’m excited to read this. Thanks for a great review as always. <3

      Thanks, Debby. It’s one of the topics I keep coming back to as well. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it. Happy new week!

  2. I love the sound of this book, Olga. I tried to recreate a bit of everyday life in war torn UK in the book I wrote with my mom about her childhood during the war.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. I thought about you straight away when I saw this book, and I’m sure your Mum would enjoy it as well. I’ve read fantastic reviews of your joint book and hope it does as well as it deserves. Have a great week!

  3. This book would make me incredibly grateful to live in a peaceful (relatively) country. I can’t imagine waking to the sound of bombs or neverending gunfire.
    Great review, Olga, thanks.

      Thanks, Jacquie. You’re absolutely right. I only wish children could be safe from war in the future. Let’s keep working and remembering. Have a great week!

  4. I used to be at school with a boy called Raymond Renshaw! (South London, 1963)
    Pen and Sword have done it again, with a perfect book for lovers of that period.
    Best wishes, Pete.

      Thanks, Pete. They might be related. I agree, Pete, Pen & Sword have a great catalogue. I think you might enjoy next week’s review as well. I think it might bring back some memories. Have a good week!

      1. I think you are one of the few reviewing Pen and Sword publications, Olga. I rarely seem them elsewhere.

        1. Olga Nunez Miret says:

          Thanks, Pete. Sometimes Rosie Amber reviews some of their books as well. They do a great Jon but are a small publishing company. We’ll keep spreading the word;

  5. It sounds like an amazing and important book, Olga. Thank you for letting us know about it, and for sharing your insights. I can’t help thinking of memories (nightmares) hundreds of detained children here will pass down. I hope someone is recording those right away, before they become lost or hidden…
    Hugs on the wing.

    1. The cover is also very compelling.

    2. Olga Nunez Miret says:

      Thanks, Teagan. You are so right, and I hope no children’s voices go unnoticed, whatever the circumstances. They are always the innocent victims. Have a good week.
