Robin OliveiraMy Name is Mary Sutter

Robin Oliveira reads from and discusses her debut novel My Name is Mary Sutter, an enthralling historical novel about a young woman’s 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 a recent heartbreak-Mary leaves home and travels to Washington, D.C. to help tend the legions of Civil War wounded. Rich with historical detail, and full of the tragedies and challenges of wartime, My Name Is Mary Sutter is an exceptional novel. And in Mary herself, Oliveira has created a truly unforgettable heroine whose unwavering determination and vulnerability will resonate with readers everywhere.

($26.95) Penguin ISBN #978-0-670-02167-3. You can visit Robin Oliveira’s official web site as well.
