I probably would not have picked this book up if it hadn't been picked as our April book club selection. It's a shame too, because it was a marvelous book and I had forgotten how much I enjoy historical novels.

"My Name is Mary Sutter" is one of those books that just disappears in your hands as you immerse yourself in the story. I tried not to compare the heroine to Scarlet O'Hara, thinking surely it must be the fact that it's a civil war era novel that reminded me of "Gone with the Wind," but really, Sutter has that same indomitable spirit that O'Hara has.

Oliveira's debut novel was a joy to read. I appreciate the hard work that must have gone into meticulously researching the civil war and how seamlessly she wove a storyline into history and science. I look forward to her future books.
