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. Great review Olga
    Hugs Galore

    1. Thanks, David. I hope all is well with you, and thanks for sharing the music and good vibes. Big hugs!

  2. Thank you Olga.

    1. Thanks, Rosie. It was a joy to catch up with the characters and the convent again. Werlinger is a fantastic writer.

  3. Glad to hear you enjoyed it as much as the first one. Though I am not sure it is something for me, I wish Caren success with her new novel.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. We all have our favourites, although every so often we might try something different. I hope you feel up to reading novels again soon. Enjoy the rest of the week!

  4. I know I’ve said it before, but I really do enjoy reading your insights, Olga. Congrats to Caren on this addition to the other novel. I admire anyone who can successfully write a story with two timelines. If I’d had any confidence in being able to do that, then there would have been a third Atonement, TN book. (I saw it in past/present, and couldn’t get that concept out of my head.)
    I hope your week is off to a great start. Hugs on the wing!

    1. Thanks, Teagan. I’m with you on how difficult it must be to pull off a story with two timelines. Perhaps it might be easier for planners, but even then, editing that type of story must be a task and a half. I’m very intrigued about your concept for a third Atonement now. Oh… I hope it comes to be, in one way or another, at some point. I believe some stories might take a long time to ferment and grow until they are ready to see the light. Stay safe and enjoy the rest of the week.

    Hi Olga, thank you for this fascinating review. I do remember your discussion about the previous book.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. I wanted to know more about some of the other characters in the previous novel, and I definitely got my wish. Enjoy the rest of the week, and have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks, Debby. I know you enjoy books that look deeply into people’s thoughts and feelings, and this is one of those. Stay strong and have a good week.
