Sing Determined not to give up hope Dr Mary Sutter a former Civil War surgeon searches for the two sisters When what happened to them is finally revealed Dr Sutter must fight the most powerful of Albany's citizens risking personal and public danger as she seeks to protect the fragile putt. 45 emotional loving eye opening starsHaving read Robin Oliveria's previous novel My Name Is Mary Sutter and enjoying it greatly I was ever so anxious to delve into her seuel I was not in the least bit disappointedIn this book we learn of Mary's marriage to William and how they now practice medicine together It is the winter of 1879 in upstate New York and a blizzard is raging Two young sisters go missing and are presumed dead taken by the snow the cold and the river close by Everyone seems to accept this theory Everyone that is except Mary William Elizabeth Mary's niece and Mary's mother They wonder how the girls could have vanished The story is built around the search that Mary and William conduct for the girls the daughters of very close friends of Mary and William's Where did the girls go Are they alive Were they taken Can Mary and William's hope for the girls be just a dream or can that hope become a realityThere was so much going on in this well written historical book It tore at one's heartstrings and made one aware of what life was like for women and young girls in 1879 It also pointed out that women of that time were definitely second class citizens and that Mary's choice of a profession was filled with bigotry hate and misogyny This book was definitely a page turner and although it did present the absolutely gruesome nature of some it also pointed out the goodness and love that lie within each of us I recommend this book most highly for ability to make one realize how far we have come in the way women are viewed and treated today

Ing at risk loves and lives in her uest to right unimaginable wrongs As contemporary as it is historic Winter Sisters is part gripping thriller part family saga and ultimately a story of trauma and resilience that explores the tremendous good and unspeakable evil of which humans are capab. I seem to be one of the few people who came into this book without having read the preuel My Name is Mary Sutter and without knowing anything about the author Perhaps if I had I would have been prepared for what was to come but alas as it was what I read was not in the least what I expected ie a magical fairytale or a cozy mystery No indeed this was a gritty dark meticulously researched work of historical fiction that covered some incredibly challenging themes child abduction rape devastating natural events floods blizzards bribery and corruption at the highest levels of local politics and Considering that I was expecting and in the mood for a light and magical tale it speaks to the excellence of this novel that I was uickly pulled in and enthralled to the point I was staying up long past my bedtime to find out what happened next Oliveira builds a rich atmosphere depicting late 19th century Albany in great detail and she examines the sensitive themes she does with tastefulness that does not brush over their horrific nature The story is essentially about two girls orphaned in a blizzard who are kidnapped and held against their will while the 10 year old one is raped Some chapters in and several weeks later the girls are able to escape the basement where they are held because of another natural disaster a flood caused by melting ice and snow The remainder of the story is about the aftermath of their travails about the trail both legal and public opinion about the difficulty of healing from such traumatic and horrific crimes about the power of familial support But what makes this an excellent historical work is that Winter Sisters is not just a story of individual overcoming of hardship it is also an expertly woven political tale about city machinations and crony relationships within the governmental and business spheres and about corruption at the highest levels And finally it is a searing depiction of and commentary on the historical oppression of women not only by the literal letter of the law but also by public opinion In 1879 the age of consent in NY was ten years and the vast majority of rape victims who even made it to trial as rape trials were incredibly rare were accused of wanting it and asking for it and as long as they were 10 years old or over usually this defense worked So many of these themes held on for at least a century though to an extent we are finally now emerging out of this era of traditional debasement and devaluing of womenThis novel is not for the faint of heart and also not for those who do not wish to read about such horrific acts as child rape which is implied only not described But if you can bear that I highly recommend this to anyone interested in historical fiction especially that set in the United States around the period of industrialization and urbanization and especially to those interested in women's history
