Praise

“A vivid romantic novel about love, medicine, and the Civil War, My Name is Mary Sutter features an indomitable, memorable heroine whom the reader will root for until the very end.”—David Ebershoff, author of The Danish Girl and The 19th Wife 

“Think of Mary Sutter as a northern Scarlett O’Hara without the man-killer good looks for feminine wile… [Oliveira] peels back Mary’s vulnerable, human side in this intriguing slice of Civil War history.”—USA Today

“[A] riveting saga about trying to break a 19th-century glass ceiling.”—Good Housekeeping

“Oliveira’s debut novel is magnificent historical fiction.”—Bookpage

“The title of Robin Oliveira’s historical novel, My Name is Mary Sutter, perfectly evokes its eponymous heroine’s style: clear, determined, and, unline most women of the Civil War era, unapologetically direct.”—O, The Oprah Magazine

“Oliveira’s graceful, assured portrayal of a courageous woman shines through in her outstanding debut novel… [an] impressive historical epic.”—Booklist

“Compelling voice … [Oliveira] does a splendid job of reminding us how much the known world has changed … and how much has not.”—Oregonian

“Oliveira deftly depicts the chaotic aftermath of battles and develops her own characters while incorporating military and political leaders of the time. The historic details enrich the narrative without overshadowing Mary’s struggles. This well-written and compelling debut will engage all readers of historical fiction, especially those interested in the Civil War.”—Library Journal

“The language is beautiful and the story will keep you on the edge of your seat throughout.” 
—(Albany) Times Union
