Click for availability and more information My Name is Mary Sutter, by Robin Oliveira
Mary Sutter is a young, headstrong midwife from Albany, NY who dreams of becoming a surgeon in 19th-century America. Unable to obtain a higher education and determined to overcome the prejudices against women becoming doctors, Mary leaves home and travels to Washington, D.C., to pursue her medical career by caring for wounded soldiers during the Civil War. Every step of the way she faces unimaginable odds, but she rises to each challenge and overcomes great obstacles. The novel is factually accurate in both the historical descriptions of the Civil War, and medical practices from that era, and has strong characters throughout the book.
