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.

    Wow, thanks Olga. This sounds like a wonderful read. 🙂

    1. Ah, yes, Pippa knows her stuff when it comes to the Regency Period and actresses. Even when we were children she was fascinated by the era. Rachel Knowles’ book is an absolute must for me. I’d like to recommend Tracy Chevalier’s Remarkable Creatures which is a fabulous fictionalised version of Mary Anning’s fossil forays and which I never stop recommending.

      1. Thanks, Sarah. I thought you would be interested. I note your recommendation. I love Tracy Chevalier and reading more about Mary Anning will be a treat. Have a great week and I hope you’re feeling better.

    2. Thanks, Pete. I’ll check it out. I know I’ve visited her blog before but I don’t think I’ve read the whole series. Have a great week.

  2. Sounds like a fascinating book, Olga.

    1. It is! Thanks, Mary (you had been relegated to spam too. I wonder what’s going on).

  3. Olga this sounds marvelous. The research geek part of me would be on cloud nine! Thanks for taking time to read, review, and share this with us. Huge hugs.

    1. It was a true discovery for me. Thanks, Teagan and have a great week!

  4. A fascinating bunch of women. I think you would enjoy the book I have just finished – Faith, Duty and the Power of Mind (don’t worry about the title, it is a fascinating story) by Gillian Sutherland. It is horribly expensive but there are secondhand copies (https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=Gillian+Sutherland&rh=n%3A266239%2Ck%3AGillian+Sutherland). Her other book In Search of the New Woman is good too.

    1. Thanks, Hilary. It does sound great, although as I’m in the process of moving back to Spain I’m trying not to accumulate any more books (other than e-books), but if I suspect if I can I’ll try and get hold of it. I’m reading another book about children’s deaths in Victorian England. Sad subject but incredible to read about the conditions at the time (I knew some of it, but had never realised how terrible it was).
      I wonder what I’m going to do with all the books! (I wish I could take them all, or at least most, with me, but it’s not possible).
      Take care and thanks for the recommendation!
