What's the Story?:
From Goodreads.com: "New York, 1879: An epic
blizzard descends on Albany, devastating the city. When the snow finally
settles, two newly orphaned girls are missing. Determined not to give
up hope, Dr. Mary Sutter, a former Civil War surgeon, searches for the
two sisters. When what happened to them is finally revealed, Dr. Sutter
must fight the most powerful of Albany's citizens, risking personal and
public danger as she seeks to protect the fragile, putting at risk loves
and lives in her quest to right unimaginable wrongs."
My Two Cents:
"Winter Sisters" is the story of Mary Sutter, a Civil War surgeon, who now finds herself entangled in the mystery of what happened to two young sisters, Emma and Claire when they disappear during a blizzard. Mary will be thrown into some difficult circumstances as she uncovers what happened to them and how to help them recover.
This book is the second book in Robin Oliviera's Mary Sutter series. It takes place quite awhile after the first book. I have not read the first book and was able to pick this book up just fine. I really enjoyed this book though and would like to go back and read the first book now.
Be warned - what happens to Emma and Claire is difficult to read and may turn off more sensitive readers. If you can get past those difficult parts, you get a good thriller with a smart heroine at the helm. I especially liked the parts about how Mary tries to help the girls both during the disappearance and after they are found. Finding the girls is the first step but there has been so much damage done that Mary really has her work cut out for her. I really enjoyed how the author inserted so much detail about the uphill battle that Mary, Emma, and Claire all face as they seek justice.
This was a riveting book and the action certainly kept me on my toes. I really enjoyed this story!
