DOWNLOAD Ñ Winter Sisters Ing at risk loves and lives in her uest to right unimaginable wrongs As contemporary as it is historic Winter Sisters is part gripping thriller part family saga and ultimately a story of trauma and resilience that explores the tremendous good and unspeakable evil of which humans are capab. I seem to be one of the few people who came into this book without having read the preuel My Name is Mary Sutter and without knowing anything about the author Perhaps if I had I would have been prepared for what was to come but alas as it was what I read was not in the least what I expected ie a magical fairytale or a cozy mystery No indeed this was a gritty dark meticulously researched work of historical fiction that covered some incredibly challenging themes child abduction rape devastating natural events floods blizzards bribery and corruption at the highest levels of local politics and Considering that I was expecting and in the mood for a light and magical tale it speaks to the excellence of this novel that I was uickly pulled in and enthralled to the point I was staying up long past my bedtime to find out what happened next Oliveira builds a rich atmosphere depicting late 19th century Albany in great detail and she examines the sensitive themes she does with tastefulness that does not brush over their horrific nature The story is essentially about two girls orphaned in a blizzard who are kidnapped and held against their will while the 10 year old one is raped Some chapters in and several weeks later the girls are able to escape the basement where they are held because of another natural disaster a flood caused by melting ice and snow The remainder of the story is about the aftermath of their travails about the trail both legal and public opinion about the difficulty of healing from such traumatic and horrific crimes about the power of familial support But what makes this an excellent historical work is that Winter Sisters is not just a story of individual overcoming of hardship it is also an expertly woven political tale about city machinations and crony relationships within the governmental and business spheres and about corruption at the highest levels And finally it is a searing depiction of and commentary on the historical oppression of women not only by the literal letter of the law but also by public opinion In 1879 the age of consent in NY was ten years and the vast majority of rape victims who even made it to trial as rape trials were incredibly rare were accused of wanting it and asking for it and as long as they were 10 years old or over usually this defense worked So many of these themes held on for at least a century though to an extent we are finally now emerging out of this era of traditional debasement and devaluing of womenThis novel is not for the faint of heart and also not for those who do not wish to read about such horrific acts as child rape which is implied only not described But if you can bear that I highly recommend this to anyone interested in historical fiction especially that set in the United States around the period of industrialization and urbanization and especially to those interested in women s history

Genre Historical FictionPublisher Penguin Group Viking Pub Date Feb 27 2018 Winter Sisters is historical fiction We see life in Albany New York during 1879 as clearly as if we have been walking down the street with the main characters Winter Sisters is a family saga with a poignant feminist narrative One character is a midwife who becomes a surgeon The author models the surgeon after Elizabeth Blackwell MD 1821 1910 America s first female doctor Winter Sisters is a mystery A historical blizzard blasts the city and in its chaotic wake two young girls go missing Her family spends weeks searching for them in case they survived This blizzard is not fiction It occurred in 1888 and took the lives of four hundred people The author moves the year back in time for a legal matter in her story Winter Sisters is a courtroom drama This occurs later in the book and brilliantly portrays a sensational trial that has the local newspapers working around the clock and the residents arguing over their dinner tables Here is where the reader discovers the reasons for pushing back the year of the storm Next sentence is a possible spoiler In 1879 the age of female sexual consent was ten years old Learning this fact made this reviewer physically ill The law was changed in 1886 The legal age for female consent went from ten years of age to sixteen years of age One can argue that although the book is marketed as historical fiction it is actually a thoughtful thriller hidden within a historical fiction tale with a feminist theme The only flaw takes place in the first few chapters There is a difficulty in following just who is who in the story s many protagonists This may be so because Winter is the follow up tale to My Name Is Mary Sutter who is the female surgeon The book is engaging as well as politically profound with matters that are still present in today times Simply look at current cable news channelsI received this Advance Review Copy ARC novel from the publisher at no cost in exchange for an honest reviewFind all my book reviews atGoodreads Me Alone I am Reading Reviewing Martie s Book Reviews
