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

Mansplaining misogyny and #metoo in the late 1800'sThe things change the they stay the sameRobin Oliveira's historical novel is a seuel of sorts to My Name is Mary Sutter and picks up about 15 years after the end of the Civil War Note Winter Sisters can be read as a stand alone without any loss of contextFollowing a devastating blizzard two young girls are missing and presumed dead Months later the girls reappear Their aunt Dr Mary Stipp nee Sutter discovers they have experienced unspeakable trauma What follows is Oliveira's interpretation of how an investigation and court case might have been conducted in an era when the authority of female doctors wasn't taken seriously and the age of consent was 10 yes you read that correctly and it is historically accurateWhile the story is interesting in its own right Oliveira includes a few modern day references to enterain readers I will gladly hear what you have to say Dr Stipp but only after I speak to Emma I do not want to contaminate my impressions with yoursThey are not impressions They are factsThere are facts and then there are alternate factsThat is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard anyone sayThat's but one example so keep your eyes peeled and enjoy4 starsThank you to NetGalley and Viking for a galley of this book in exchange for an honest review
