Review: MY NAME IS MARY SUTTER by Robin Oliveira

Silly Little Mischief read and reviewed My Name Is Mary Sutter by Robin Oliveira for the U.S. Civil War Reading Challenge 2011.  Here’s an excerpt:

I was intrigued by a woman trying to be a doctor during the American Civil War. Actually Mary Sutter is a midwife, trying to be a surgeon. What I enjoyed about this book is that it was told from multiple perspectives in one narrative. The perspective bounced from Mary to Mr Lincoln to Dr Stipp back to Mary. There were several characters to keep track of but each one was framed so beautifully I wasn’t even confused. At times it was chaotic like war but done so gracefully that it felt like a dance.
