Read full description of the books:
Review soon --short one I hope lol LOVED IT! Update:
Mary Sutter is determined and tenacious to become more than just a midwife. She wants to learn- she’s sincerely fascinated with medicine...details among details.
The obstacles for a woman to be accepted into medical school - to become a doctor - let alone a surgeon- were tenfolds more than today.
WE ALREADY KNEW THAT....
What I didn’t know .....is that debut author: Robin Oliveira, would transport me back
to a period of history and give me deep experience of The Civil War and the ‘many’ women who served.
I also visited Google to read more about the Crimean War. I wanted to understand more “why it was so important.”
The storytelling was wonderful....getting a tangible experience of the times of war in the 1860’s...
the courageous women....the many nurses tending to the massive amounts of wounded soldiers.
The lack of medical knowledge was scary. And the sanitation was just as frightening. The medical supplies were not even close to being enough.
War is tragic ...but this was a beautifully written historical novel
with a remarkable inspiring heroine.....
including real historical characters: Lincoln, Dorathea Dix, Hays, and McClellan.....
There are battles & blood, childbirth, love, and loss.....
family conflicts ...and tragedies from pain and suffering.
Society didn’t valued the women who wanted to help, and had more knowledge than some of the doctors, who could’ve helped in surgery. Instead they were turned away.... and patients died.
Engaging gut wrenching novel with one heck of a memorable Mary Sutter.
