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.

    Sounds like a wonderful book Olga. Thanks for sharing with us. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Debby!

  2. This does sound very interesting and a book that I think, with the right people, would make a very interesting, movie. Thank you, Olga for another great review…..it will go on my list…..meanwhile, hope all is well in your world and that the magic is with you. Janet:)x

    1. Thanks, Janet. Yes, it’s a great book. You are right about the movie. I picked up some agency work that is keeping me very busy. We shall see. Thanks for the magic!

  3. Like you, I have no children, and made most of my contact with Autism through work. However, I have a close friend with a severely Autistic son, so a little understanding of the heartbreak involved, and the difficulties surrounding being a parent of such a boy.
    This sounds like a compelling read, Olga. I wish Keith well with his new book.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. It is indeed. Have a great week.

  4. A terrific, thoughtful review, Olga. Have a tantalizing Tuesday! Mega hugs.

    1. You too! Mega hugs and many thanks!

  5. Sounds riveting, Olga. Thank you introducing us to the book.

    1. Thanks, Sarah. I thought so too. Have a lovely day.

    An excellent review, Olga. We have close friends who have an autistic son who is now in his thirties. It has been a tough journey for them.

    1. I can imagine. There seems to be a bit more awareness about it now, but it must have been very difficult. At work sometimes we diagnosed people in their forties or fifties. Not the most extreme cases, but still it seemed to make a difference to get some understanding (and nowadays there are some voluntary organisations that can provide support).

  7. I’m so glad more books are being written about autism, thus demystifying and humanizing this challenging condition for anyone touched by it. Thanks for the review!

    1. Thanks, Lorna. I agree and hopefully we’ll end up having books that will connect with most people.
