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. A somewhat unexpected combination of things in one book — yet all tied together and relevant to one another. You’ve gotten me interested, Olga. Thanks for another mindful review. Have a beautiful new week. Hugs on the wing.

      Thanks, Teagan! Yes, it does work and makes for fascinating reading. Have a fabulous new week!

  2. I know the area quite well, and the idea behind the book is interesting. But I am wondering if one coastal town is enough for a book, and whether Tina could have included a wider area of Sussex. It just seems that the ‘target market’ will be very small for such a niche title.
    Best wishes, Pete.

      Thanks, Pete. I think most of these books focus on local appeal and on the fact that people from the surrounding area might be interested as well. (I imagine that people researching women’s history in general or women’s history in the UK would be interested in collecting local details). I’m sure libraries and local reading groups would also be interested, but yes, it is unlikely to become a runaway bestseller, but the author knows the locality quite well, so I’m sure she’ll be doing a lot of promotion locally. I guess having a niche market might work for certain types of titles, as long as you don’t expect something else. Oh, and as I mention in the review, it does contain information about the local area as well, even if the main focus is Eastbourne itself. (I had wondered about the topic myself, but after reading this book I’d quite happily check others). Have a fabulous week!

  3. This sounds really interesting, Olga. Nice to know about these books.
