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. What a great book, Olga. I love the Bronte’s and am writing a Bronte series for Sue Vincent’s blog which will start this week. How lucky to see this post this week. I am going over to order this.

    1. I ordered the hard cover copy. I think this is a collectors Item. I see she has a book on Aunt Branwell too.

        It has got a lot if attention for evident reasons, Robbie. Aunt Elizabeth was very important to the family, as you well know, and she features prominently in this book as well. I’ll have to make sure to check your series on the Brontës. 🙂

      I thought you’d be interested. Serendipity and all that! Have a fabulous week!

  2. This is undoubtedly going to get a massive take-up, Olga.
    The Bronte story is devoured by a huge number of fans.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. It does a great job of explaining the circumstances they lived in and the historical moment, so it works on several levels. I hope you have a fabulous week.

  3. A fascinating subject Olga and I am sure that the author is going to enjoy the attention from Bronte fans, who like most of us really had not given their mother as much thought as she should have perhaps received. hugs

    1. Thanks, Sally. Yes, you’re right. Because she died when they were quite young, we don’t tend to think about her that much, but after reading this book, it’s clear she and her family had quite an influence. And it gives us a fascinating view of what life was like at the time.
      Thanks for commenting and welcome back!

  4. A lovely review which leaves me wanting to read more… I seem to be veering towards differing genre’s as I age..

    1. Thanks, Carol. I think you’ll enjoy it. And I am the same. I pick up books and genres that I wouldn’t have read years back. It’s good to keep the brain ticking. Enjoy the rest of the week!

    This is fascinating Olga. I’m pretty sure your review and shares around will help to sell many copies. I’m hopping over myself to Amazon. 🙂 x

      Thanks Debby. It’s good to remember the hidden stories of women from the past. Have a fabulous rest of the week!

        Absolutely Olga! Thank you, Happy week to you! 🙂 x

        1. 🙂

  6. This sounds like a very interesting read!

    1. It is, Liz, especially if you’re interested in the Brontes and the historical period. Thanks for the comment!

      1. You’re welcome!

  7. Olga, this is such a fascinating topic — and I confess that I know little about it. I appreciate your mindful review. Hugs on the wing!

    1. Thanks, Teagan. There’s little written about their mother, so you’re not the only one, and that’s one of the things that makes the book pretty interesting. It’s also very well written. Thanks for visiting, especially at such a busy time.
