This Month’s Book: My Name Is Mary Sutter By Robin Oliveira

Filed under: Historical Fiction,My Name Is Mary Sutter,What is next?? — susanbright @ 10:03 am

Mary Sutter is a midwife who dreams of being a surgeon. However it is 1861, a time when it  is unheard of for a women to be accepted into Medical School. After sending in application after application with no response, Mary leaves her home in Albany, New York and heads to Washington D.C determined to fulfill her dream. Our book club has always enjoyed Historical Fictions. Join us in reading this novel which takes place during The Civil War!



  1. Our library book discussion group chose this for our Dec. selection. The author’s last name is spelled Oliveira, not Oliviera–I had to check a few times myself.
    Just thought you’d appreciate the correction. I, too am enjoying the book.
