Summary Winter Sisters

Winter SistersStunning Oliveira writes with feeling” The New York Times Book Review“An engrossing story that feel utterly timely” People “The Best New Books” New York An epic blizzard descends on Albany devastating the city When the snow finally settles two newly orphaned girls are missing. This is a straightforward historical novel and the follow up to My Name is Mary Sutter Since I haven’t read Mary Sutter I chose to skip a a paragraph here and there to prevent spoiling that book should I choose to read it Nevertheless Winter Sisters may be read as a stand aloneWinter Sisters takes place fourteen years after the Civil War as two young sisters become lost during the mother of all blizzards in Albany New York You do find out what happens to the sisters about midway through the book and the remaining portion deals with what exactly took place by whom and the ensuing courtroom drama While it isn’t difficult to figure out who the culprit is I did find the role of women during this time to be eye opening We all know that women were considered to be secondary to men remnants of which can still be felt today Anyway this makes Dr Mary Sutter’s profession all the admirable For example she illegally treats prostitutes who were unable to receive medical attention due to their profession Further Dr Sutter endures a brutal review by an all male medical board which put my teeth on edge Clearly I found the depiction of women’s issues to be compelling than the story itself
