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. It sounds like a book with an unreliable narrator. I love that! Good review, Olga!

    1. Thanks, Priscilla. I also love unreliable narrators, especially those that readers don’t realise are unreliable until the very end. That’s not the case here, exactly (the main character does not trust herself as she has anxiety and other mental health problems and is withdrawing from medication), but there are other things going on, that make the narrative, as a whole, unreliable, but I can’t go into any more detail without revealing too much. A fascinating novel. Have a great week.

  2. As always—a deeply thoughtful and intriguing review. This goes on my TBR list!

    1. Thanks, Barb. I love Keith Stuart, and no matter what he writes about, he creates memorable characters that touch the heart. I hope you enjoy. Stay safe and have a great week.

  3. I really enjoyed A Boy Made of Blocks and although this is clearly very different it sounds really good.

    1. Thanks, Mary. Yes, a Boy Made of Blocks is a fantastic book, and the author is great at creating characters readers care about. I think you’ll enjoy this one, Mary. Keep safe, keep getting stronger, and take care. ♥

    Thanks for drawing this to my attention, Olga. I enjoyed A Boy Made of Blocks, and will be putting this one on my to-read list.

    1. Thanks, Wendy. This is quite different in genre, but the author has a knack for choosing interesting characters, showing things from their point of view, and making us care for them. Stay safe and have a great week.

  5. Added this to my Amazon Wish List immediately, Olga. My kind of book!
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. I think you’ll really appreciate this one. I suspect you’ll have come across some stories when you were in the ambulance service that have more than one point of contact with this one. Keep safe and enjoy the rest of the week. 🙂

  6. I have read a review of this book somewhere else, Olga. It was also a good review and this book certainly interests me.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. Knowing how much you enjoy research and your interest in that particular historical period, I’m sure you’d enjoy this one. The writer is excellent and creates great characters as well. Stay safe, and good luck with all your projects.

  7. This sounds like an enthralling story, Olga. Another wonderful review. Toni x

    1. Thanks, Toni. This author always manages to create characters one becomes very fond of. Stay well and have a lovely week. ♥

  8. Hi Olga. What a thought provoking review. I like the title, but would have passed it by, thinking it was some sort of drama-romance thing, emphasis on the drama. You’ve managed to be quite intriguing without revealing. It sounds like an interesting read — even if only to look at how it is written. Although the story sounds interesting too. Well done, my friend. Hugs on the wing.

    1. Thanks, Teagan. I wondered about the title, and it made me think about the movie Frequency, but knowing the author, I imagined it would be pretty special anyway, and it was. I hope you’re staying safe, and I look forward to the next Journey and to your new posts as well. ♥
