My Name Is Mary Sutter: A Novel by Robin Oliveira

An enthralling historical novel about a young womans struggle to become a doctor during the Civil War. In this stunning first novel, Mary Sutter is a brilliant, headstrong midwife from Albany, New York, who dreams of becoming a surgeon. Determined to overcome the prejudices against women in medicine-and eager to run away from her recent heartbreak- Mary leaves home and travels to Washington, D.C. to help tend the legions of Civil War wounded. Under the guidance of William Stipp and James Blevens-two surgeons who fall unwittingly in love with Marys courage, will, and stubbornness in the face of suffering-and resisting her mothers pleas to return home to help with the birth of her twin sisters baby, Mary pursues her medical career in the desperately overwhelmed hospitals of the capital. Like Charles Fraziers Cold Mountain and Robert Hickss The Widow of the South, My Name Is Mary Sutter powerfully evokes the atmosphere of the period. Rich with historical detail (including marvelous depictions of Lincoln, Dorothea Dix, General McClellan, and John Hay among others), and full of the tragedies and challenges of wartime, My Name Is Mary Sutter is an exceptional novel. And in Mary herself, Robin Oliveira has created a truly unforgettable heroine whose unwavering determination and vulnerability will resonate with readers everywhere.
