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. I like the excerpt comparing Greta’s mother’s presence to a slowly receding glacier. Sounds like a wonderful book. Thanks for sharing your review, Olga!

    1. Thanks, Priscilla. I didn’t know what to expect, but this book really connected with me. Stay well and all the best.

  2. Good luck to Jennifer with her new adult book. I can already see the film adaptation becoming a huge hit.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. I am sure it will work wonderfully. The setting would be beautiful, and if they managed to get some talented singer (with good acting skills) and some older actor playing the Dad… Pefect! Enjoy the rest of the week, Pete!

  3. This one sounds rather unique, Olga. The colors on the cover make me feel it will be refreshing somehow too. Thanks for your mindful review. Best to Greta. Hugs to you both.

    1. Thanks, Teagan. Despite the emotional moments and the pull at the heartstrings, reading this novel felt also like going on a trip. Take care and good luck with all your work.

    A tterrific review, Olga!

    1. Thanks, Alex. I found the perfect book for me at the perfect time. Good luck with your books as well. I keep reading great reviews of them and have them on my list as well.

  5. Hi Olga, thank you for this review. For some reason this book doesn’t appeal to me, I think its the break down on stage aspect.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. Although that particular episode takes place before the novel starts, there are references to it throughout (as it marked a before and after in Greta’s career), and it made her realise her mother was really gone. Enjoy your reading and all the best to you and your family.

  6. Sounds like an intriguing read Olga and I too have wanted to take an Alaskan cruise…thanks for your thoughts on the book hugs xx

    1. Thanks, Sally. The cruise bit is wonderful, but I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and the relationship between father and daughter. I hope you get a chance to read it. ♥

  7. That was an incredible review, Olga – this sounds like a very special story. Toni x

    1. Thanks, Toni. It ticked many boxes for me, Toni, some that I didn’t anticipate it would, so yes, I had a wonderful time reading it. I am very pleased that came through in my review. Enjoy the rest of the week, Toni.
